StrictMath atan() Method in Java

The java.lang.StrictMath.atan() is an inbuilt method of StrictMath class which is used to return the tangent of a given argument. It returns the angle is within the range of -pi/2 and pi/2. It gives rise to two special results:

  • The output is NaN if the passed parameter is a NaN.
  • If the passed argument is 0, then the result is also a 0 retaining the same sign as the argument.

Syntax :

public static double atan(double num)

Parameters: The method accepts one parameter num of double type and refers to the value whose tangent is to be returned.



Return Value: The method returns the arc tangent value of the argument.

Examples :

Input: num = 0.61
Output: 0.5477400137159024

Input: num = 0.0
Output: 0.0

Input: num = -71.0
Output: -1.5567127509720364
