A point is located in a polar coordinate system by the coordinates r = 1.8 m and θ = 18°. Find the x- and y-coordinates of this point, assuming that the two coordinate systems have the same origin

So in the polar system, the x axis is 0 degrees/radian, and the y is at 90 degrees per radian, or pi/2

The conversion from cartesian to polar is done using a simple formula:

x = rcos(theta) = 1.8*cos(18) = 1.18

y=rsin(theta) = 1.8*sin(18) = -1.35
