JavaScript Math cos( ) Method

  • Last Updated : 08 Jul, 2020

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

Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof. But before you tackle the big projects, we suggest you start by learning the basics. Kickstart your web development journey by learning JS concepts with our JavaScript Course. Now at it's lowest price ever!

  • Example:

    <script type="text/javascript">
             document.write("The cos of 0 : " + Math.cos(0));
  • Output:
    The cos of 0 : 1

The Math.cos() method is used to return the cosine of a number. The Math.cos() method returns a numeric value between -1 and 1, which represents the cosine of the angle given in radians. The cos() is a static method of Math, therefore, it is always used as Math.cos(), rather than as a method of a Math object created.



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

  • value: This parameter is a number given in radians.

Returns: The Math.cos() function returns the cosine of the given numbers which range from -1 to 1.

Below example illustrate the cos() method in JavaScript:

  • Example 1:
    Input: Math.cos(010)
    Output : -0.14550003380861354
  • Example 2:
    Input: Math.cos(10)
    Output : -0.8390715290764524

More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: When 1 is passed as a parameter.

<script type="text/javascript">
         document.write("Result : " + Math.cos(1));


Result : 0.5403023058681398

Program 2: When PI is passed as a parameter.

<script type="text/javascript">
         document.write("Result : " + Math.cos(Math.PI));


Result : -1
