MathF.Sin() Method in C# with Examples
  • Last Updated : 04 Apr, 2019

MathF.Sin(Single) is an inbuilt MathF class method which returns the sine of a given float value argument(specified angle).

Syntax: public static float Sin (float x);
Here, x is the angle(measured in radian) whose sine is to be returned and the type of this parameter is System.Single.

Return Value: This method will return the sine of x of type System.Single. If x is equal to NegativeInfinity, PositiveInfinity, or NaN, then this method returns NaN.

Below programs illustrate the use of the above-discussed method:

Example 1:






// C# program to illustrate the
// MathF.Sin(Single) Method
using System;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main(String[] args)
    {
        float a = 17f;
  
        // converting value to radians
        float b = (a * (MathF.PI)) / 180;
  
        // using method and displaying result
        Console.WriteLine(MathF.Sin(b));
        a = 47f;
  
        // converting value to radians
        b = (a * (MathF.PI)) / 180;
  
        // using method and displaying result
        Console.WriteLine(MathF.Sin(b));
        a = 96F;
  
        // converting value to radians
        b = (a * (MathF.PI)) / 180;
  
        // using method and displaying result
        Console.WriteLine(MathF.Sin(b));
    }
}
Output:
0.2923717
0.7313538
0.9945219

Example 2: To show the working of MathF.Sin(Single) method when the argument is NaN or infinity.




// C# program to illustrate the
// MathF.Sin(Single) Method
using System;
  
class Geeks {
  
    // Main Method
    public static void Main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Taking the positive, negative
        // infinity and NaN
        float positiveInfinity = float.PositiveInfinity;
        float negativeInfinity = float.NegativeInfinity;
        float nan = float.NaN;
  
        float result;
  
        // Here argument is negative infinity,
        // so the output will be NaN
        result = MathF.Sin(negativeInfinity);
        Console.WriteLine(result);
  
        // Here argument is positive infinity,
        // so the output will also be NaN
        result = MathF.Sin(positiveInfinity);
        Console.WriteLine(result);
  
        // Here the argument is NaN, so 
        // the output will be NaN
        result = MathF.Sin(nan);
        Console.WriteLine(result);
    }
}
Output:
NaN
NaN
NaN
