JavaScript Math sin( ) Method

  • Last Updated : 09 Jul, 2020

Below is the example of the Math sin() 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("When zero is  passed as a parameter: " 
                         + Math.sin(0));
  • Output:
    When zero is  passed as a parameter: 0

The Math.sin() method in Javascript is used to return the sine of a number. The Math.sin() method returns a numeric value between -1 and 1, which represents the sine of the angle given in radians.

The sin() is a static method of Math, therefore, it is always used as Math.sin(), rather than as a method of a Math object created.



Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter as mentioned above and described below:
value which is a number given in radians.

Return Value: The Math.sin() method returns the sine of the given numbers.

Below examples illustrates the Math sin() method in JavaScript:

  • Example 1:
    Input : Math.sin(0)
    Output : 0
  • Example 1:
    Input : Math.sin(1)
    Output : 0.8414709848078965
  • Example 1:
    Input : Math.sin(Math.PI / 2)
    Output : 1

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.sin(1));


Result : 0.8414709848078965

Program 2: When PI is passed as a parameter.

<script type="text/javascript">
         document.write("Result : " + Math.sin(Math.PI / 2));


Result : 1
