# JavaScript Math acos( ) Method

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

• Example:

 ` `

• 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```
