Python – math.atan() function

Math module contains a number of functions which is used for mathematical operations. The math.atan() function returns the arctangent of a number as a value. The value passed in this function should be between -PI/2 and PI/2 radians.

Syntax: math.atan(x)

Parameter:This method accepts only single parameters.

• x :This parameter is the value to be passed to atan()

Returns:This function returns the arctangent of a number as a value.

Below examples illustrate the use of above function:

Example 1:

 `# Python code to implement ` `# the atan()function ` ` `  `# importing "math" ` `# for mathematical operations   ` `import` `math    ` `     `  `a ``=` `math.pi ``/` `6` `      `  `# returning the value of arctangent  of pi / 6   ` `print` `(``"The value of tangent of pi / 6 is : "``, end ``=``"")   ` `print` `(math.atan(a))   `

Output:

```The value of tangent of pi / 6 is : 0.48234790710102493
```

Example 2:

 `# Python code to implement ` `# the atan()function ` `import` `math  ` `import` `numpy as np  ` `import` `matplotlib.pyplot as plt   ` `    `  `in_array ``=` `np.linspace(``0``, np.pi, ``10``)   ` `    `  `out_array ``=` `[]  ` `    `  `for` `i ``in` `range``(``len``(in_array)):  ` `    ``out_array.append(math.atan(in_array[i]))  ` `    ``i ``+``=` `1` `       `  `print``(``"Input_Array : \n"``, in_array)   ` `print``(``"\nOutput_Array : \n"``, out_array)    ` `  `  `plt.plot(in_array, out_array, ``"go:"``)   ` `plt.title(``"math.atan()"``)   ` `plt.xlabel(``"X"``)   ` `plt.ylabel(``"Y"``)   ` `plt.show()   `

Output:

```Input_Array :
[0.         0.34906585 0.6981317  1.04719755 1.3962634  1.74532925
