Function name:

SIN

Category:

Mathematical

Summary:

Returns the sine of the given angle (in radians).

Syntax:

SIN(Number)

Returns:

Returns the (trigonometric) sine of Number, the angle in radians. The resultant value is between -1 and 1, i.e. [-1,1].

Arguments:

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.

Additional details:

To insert an angle in degrees, either multiply the angle by PI()/180 or use the RADIANS function to convert the angle to radians.
