Write an expression for the point P. [PIC] The picture is sadly enough incomplete, but lets say r=1 as in the unit circle.

    I'll keep r symbolic. If the line that leads from the x-axis to point P is perpendicular to the x-axis, what is p's x-value?

    Well, I'd suggest removing the circle from your drawing and keeping v and your new x value.
