# Python | Tensorflow sin() method

• Last Updated : 11 Jan, 2022

Tensorflow is an open-source machine learning library developed by Google. One of its applications is to develop deep neural networks.
The module tensorflow.math provides support for many basic mathematical operations. Function tf.sin() [alias tf.math.sin] provides support for the sine function in Tensorflow. It expects the input in radian form and the output is in the range [-1, 1]. The input type is tensor and if the input contains more than one element, element-wise sine is computed.

Syntax: tf.sin(x, name=None) or tf.math.sin(x, name=None)
Parameters
x: A tensor of any of the following types: float16, float32, float64, complex64, or complex128.
name (optional): The name for the operation.
Return type: A tensor with the same type as that of x.

Code #1:

## Python3

 `# Importing the Tensorflow library``import` `tensorflow as tf` `# A constant vector of size 6``a ``=` `tf.constant([``1.0``, ``-``0.5``, ``3.4``, ``-``2.1``, ``0.0``, ``-``6.5``], dtype ``=` `tf.float32)` `# Applying the sin function and``# storing the result in 'b'``b ``=` `tf.sin(a, name ``=``'sin'``)` `# Initiating a Tensorflow session``with tf.Session() as sess:``    ``print``(``'Input type:'``, a)``    ``print``(``'Input:'``, sess.run(a))``    ``print``(``'Return type:'``, b)``    ``print``(``'Output:'``, sess.run(b))`

Output:

```Input type: Tensor("Const_1:0", shape=(6, ), dtype=float32)
Input: [ 1.        -0.5        3.4000001 -2.0999999  0.        -6.5      ]
Return type: Tensor("sin_0:0", shape=(6, ), dtype=float32)
Output: [ 0.84147096 -0.47942555 -0.25554121 -0.86320943  0.         -0.21511999]```

Code #2: Visualization

## Python3

 `# Importing the Tensorflow library``import` `tensorflow as tf` `# Importing the NumPy library``import` `numpy as np` `# Importing the matplotlib.pyplot function``import` `matplotlib.pyplot as plt` `# A vector of size 15 with values from -5 to 5``a ``=` `np.linspace(``-``5``, ``5``, ``15``)` `# Applying the sigmoid function and``# storing the result in 'b'``b ``=` `tf.sin(a, name ``=``'sin'``)` `# Initiating a Tensorflow session``with tf.Session() as sess:``    ``print``(``'Input:'``, a)``    ``print``(``'Output:'``, sess.run(b))``    ``plt.plot(a, sess.run(b), color ``=` `'red'``, marker ``=` `"o"``)``    ``plt.title(``"tensorflow.sin"``)``    ``plt.xlabel(``"X"``)``    ``plt.ylabel(``"Y"``)` `    ``plt.show()`

Output:

```Input: [-5.         -4.28571429 -3.57142857 -2.85714286 -2.14285714 -1.42857143

3.57142857  4.28571429  5.        ]
Output: [ 0.95892427  0.91034694  0.41672165 -0.2806294  -0.84078711 -0.98990308
