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:

# 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))
