# StrictMath cos() Method in Java with Examples

• Last Updated : 13 Dec, 2021

All methods of java.lang.StrictMath class : Set 1, Set 2
The java.lang.StrictMath.cos() is an inbuilt method in Java which is used to return the cosine value of a given angle. The method returns NaN when the given argument is NaN or infinity.
Syntax:

`public static double cos(double num)`

Parameters: The method accepts one parameter num of double type and refers to the angle in radian whose cosine value is to be returned.
Return Value: The method returns the cosine of the argument.
Examples :

```Input: num = 62.0
Output: 0.6735071623235862

Input: num = 64.6
Output: -0.19607204956188945```

Below programs illustrate the java.lang.StrictMath.cos() method:
Program 1:

## java

 `// Java program to illustrate the``// java.lang.StrictMath.cos()``import` `java.lang.*;` `public` `class` `Geeks {` `public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args) {` `    ``double` `num1 = ``0.0``, num2= ``1.0` `, num3= ``64.6``;``    ` `    ``/* Returns trigonometric cosine of specified``    ``angle in radian*/``    ``double` `cosValue = StrictMath.cos(num1);``    ``System.out.println("The cosine of "+``                           ``num1+" = " + cosValue);` `    ``cosValue = StrictMath.cos(num2);``    ``System.out.println("The cosine of "+``                           ``num2+" = " + cosValue);` `    ``cosValue = StrictMath.cos(num3);``    ``System.out.println("The cosine of "+``                           ``num3+" = " + cosValue);}``}`

Output:

```The cosine of 0.0 = 1.0
The cosine of 1.0 = 0.5403023058681398
The cosine of 64.6 = -0.19607204956188945```

Program 2:

## java

 `// Java program to illustrate the``// java.lang.StrictMath.cos()``import` `java.lang.*;` `public` `class` `Geeks {` `public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args) {` `    ``double` `num1= -``62.0``, num2 = ``1.0``;``        ``double` `num3= (``45``*(Math.PI))/``180``;``    ` `    ``/* It returns the  cosine of specified``    ``angle in radian*/``    ``double` `cosValue = StrictMath.cos(num1);``    ``System.out.println("The cosine of "+``                           ``num1+" = " + cosValue);``    ``cosValue = StrictMath.cos(num2);``    ``System.out.println("The cosine of "+``                           ``num2+" = " + cosValue);``    ``cosValue = StrictMath.cos(num3);``    ``System.out.println("The cosine of "+``                           ``num3+" = " + cosValue);}``}`

Output:

```The cosine of -62.0 = 0.6735071623235862
The cosine of 1.0 = 0.5403023058681398
The cosine of 0.7853981633974483 = 0.7071067811865476```
