$\tan\theta=-\frac{\sqrt 3}{3}$

Work Step by Step

1.We get this information from the sine value $y=2$ $r=2$ 2. We can use y and r to find x (we need to remember that sign of x depends on quadrant, since it ends in quadrant II, x must be negative) $r=\sqrt {y^{2}+x^{2}}$ $y=-\sqrt {r^{2}-x^{2}}=-\sqrt {2^{2}-1^{2}}=-\sqrt {3}$ 4. Then insert values, $\tan\theta=\frac{-\sqrt 3}{3}$
