Below is the example of the Math acos( ) Method.

  • Example:
    filter_none

    close

    play_arrow

    link
    brightness_4
    code

    <script type="text/javascript">
             document.write("When 1 is  passed as a parameter: " 
                            + Math.acos(1));
    </script>

    chevron_right

    
    

  • Output:
    When 1 is  passed as a parameter: 0

The Math.acos( ) method is used to return the arccosine of a number in radians. The Math.acos() method returns a numeric value between 0 and pi radians. The Math acos() is a static method of Math, therefore, it is always used as Math.acos(), rather than as a method of a Math object created.

Math.acos(x)=arccos(x)=unique y,
where y belongs to [0;pi]
such that cos(y)=x

Syntax:

Math.acos(value)

Parameters: This function accepts single parameter as mentioned above and described below:



  • value which is a number in radians who arccosine you want to find.

Returns: The Math.acos() function returns the arccosine of the given number in radians.

Below examples illustrate the Math acos( ) method in JavaScript:

  • Example 1:
    Input  : Math.acos(1)
    Output : 0
  • Example 2:
    Input  : Math.acos(-1)
    Output : 3.141592653589793
  • Example 3:
    Input : Math.acos(0)
    Output: 1.5707963267948966

More example codes for the above method are as follows:
