numpy.arccos() in Python

numpy.arccos(x[, out]) = ufunc ‘arccos’) : This mathematical function helps user to calculate inverse cos for all x(being the array elements).

Parameters :

array    : [array_like]elements are in radians.
out      : [array_like]array of same shape as x.

Note :



2pi Radians = 360 degrees
The convention is to return the angle z whose real part lies in [0, pi].

Return :

An array with inverse cosine of x 
for all x i.e. array elements. 

The values are in the closed interval [-pi/2, pi/2].
