StrictMath sin() Method in Java

The java.lang.StrictMath.sin() is an in-built function in Java which returns the trigonometric sine of an angle.

Syntax:

public static double sin(double ang)

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter ang which is a double variable which represents an angle (in radians) whose trigonometric tangent is to be returned by the function.



Return Value: This method returns the sine of the angle passed as argument to the function. The following cases are considered :

  • The function returns NaN if the argument is NaN or infinity.
  • The function returns zero with the sign same as that of the argument if the argument is zero.

Examples:

Input : ang = 0.5235987755982988(30 degree)
Output : 0.49999999999999994

Input : ang = 0.7853981633974483(45 degree)
Output : 0.7071067811865475
