Returns the sine of the given angle (in radians).
Returns the (trigonometric) sine of Number, the angle in radians. The resultant value is between -1 and 1, i.e. [-1,1].
Number is the real number,or a reference to a cell containing that number, which is the angle in radians whose sine value is to be calculated.
To insert an angle in degrees, either multiply the angle by PI()/180 or use the RADIANS function to convert the angle to radians.
