The java.lang.StrictMath.tan() is an in-built function in Java which returns the trigonometric tangent of an angle.
public static double tan(double ang)
Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter ang which is a double variable representing an angle (in radians) whose trigonometric tangent is to be returned by the function.
Return Value: This method returns the tangent of the angle passed as argument to the function. It gives rise to special cases:
- The method returns NaN if the argument is NaN or an infinity.
- The result is zero with the same sign as the argument, if the argument is zero.
Input : ang = 0.5235987755982988(30 degree) Output : 0.5773502691896257 Input : ang = 0.7853981633974483(45 degree) Output : 0.9999999999999999
