Tangent
Usage:
Tangent Angle
Sin Angle
The
Tangent
command returns the mathematical Tangent of the entered Angle. Angle is expressed in radians.
In a right triangle the
Tangent
is the ratio of opposite/adjacent.
PI is available as a constant for example, the Tangent of PI/4 can be computed by
Tangent PI/4
.
To compute the Tangent of an angle measured in degrees use the function
DegToRad
which will convert degrees into radians. For example, try
Tangent DegToRad(30)
Examples:
Tangent_0.3927 >d4
returns 0.4142.
Tangent_PI/8
returns 0.4142.
Tangent_atan(.7)
returns .7.
