Python Language Trigonometric Functions


Example

a, b = 1, 2

import math

math.sin(a)  # returns the sine of 'a' in radians
# Out: 0.8414709848078965

math.cosh(b)  # returns the inverse hyperbolic cosine of 'b' in radians
# Out: 3.7621956910836314

math.atan(math.pi)  # returns the arc tangent of 'pi' in radians
# Out: 1.2626272556789115

math.hypot(a, b) # returns the Euclidean norm, same as math.sqrt(a*a + b*b)
# Out: 2.23606797749979

Note that math.hypot(x, y) is also the length of the vector (or Euclidean distance) from the origin (0, 0) to the point (x, y).

To compute the Euclidean distance between two points (x1, y1) & (x2, y2) you can use math.hypot as follows

math.hypot(x2-x1, y2-y1)

To convert from radians -> degrees and degrees -> radians respectively use math.degrees and math.radians

math.degrees(a)
# Out: 57.29577951308232

math.radians(57.29577951308232)
# Out: 1.0
