Java Math cos() method with Examples

• Last Updated : 06 Apr, 2018

The java.lang.Math.cos() returns the trigonometric cosine of an angle. If the argument is NaN or an infinity, then the result returned is NaN. The returned value will be in range [-1, 1].

Syntax :

public static double cos(double angle)
Parameters:
The function has one mandatory parameter angle which is in radians.

Returns :
The function returns the trigonometric cosine of an angle.

Example 1 : To show working of java.lang.Math.cos() method.

 // Java program to demonstrate working// of java.lang.Math.cos() methodimport java.lang.Math;  class Gfg {      // driver code    public static void main(String args[])    {        double a = 30;                  // converting values to radians        double b = Math.toRadians(a);          System.out.println(Math.cos(b));          a = 45;                  // converting values to radians        b = Math.toRadians(a);          System.out.println(Math.cos(b));          a = 60;                  // converting values to radians        b = Math.toRadians(a);          System.out.println(Math.cos(b));          a = 0;                  // converting values to radians        b = Math.toRadians(a);          System.out.println(Math.cos(b));    }}
Output:
0.8660254037844387
0.7071067811865476
0.5000000000000001

Example 2 : To show working of java.lang.Math.cos() method when argument is NAN or infinity.

 // Java program to demonstrate working// of java.lang.Math.cos() method infinity caseimport java.lang.Math; // importing java.lang package  public class GFG {    public static void main(String[] args)    {          double positiveInfinity =                Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY;        double negativeInfinity =                Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY;        double nan = Double.NaN;        double result;          // Here argument is negative infinity,         // output will be NaN        result = Math.cos(negativeInfinity);        System.out.println(result);          // Here argument is positive infinity,         // output will also be NaN        result = Math.cos(positiveInfinity);        System.out.println(result);          // Here argument is NaN, output will be NaN        result = Math.cos(nan);        System.out.println(result);    }}
Output:
NaN
NaN
NaN
