numpy.arcsin() in Python
  • Last Updated : 29 Nov, 2018

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

Parameters :

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

Return :

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

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

 
Code #1 : Working




# Python program explaining
# arcsin() function
  
import numpy as np
  
in_array = [0, 1, 0.3, -1]
print ("Input array : \n", in_array)
  
arcsin_Values = np.arcsin(in_array)
print ("\nInverse Sine values : \n", arcsin_Values)


Output :



Input array : 
 [0, 1, 0.3, -1]

Inverse Sine values : 
 [ 0.          1.57079633  0.30469265 -1.57079633]

 
Code #2 : Graphical representation




# Python program showing
# Graphical representation of 
# arcsin() function
  
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
  
in_array = np.linspace(-np.pi, np.pi, 12)
out_array1 = np.sin(in_array)
out_array2 = np.arcsin(in_array)
  
print("in_array : ", in_array)
print("\nout_array with sin : ", out_array1)
print("\nout_arraywith arcsin : ", out_array1)
  
# red for numpy.arcsin()
plt.plot(in_array, out_array1,
            color = 'blue', marker = "*")
              
plt.plot(in_array, out_array2,
            color = 'red', marker = "o")
              
plt.title("blue : numpy.sin() \nred : numpy.arcsin()")
plt.xlabel("X")
plt.ylabel("Y")
plt.show()


Output :


in_array :  [-3.14159265 -2.57039399 -1.99919533 -1.42799666 -0.856798   -0.28559933
