SIN

Returns the sine of the specified angle.

Syntax

SIN(angle)

Comments

angle is a numeric expression that specifies an angle in radians.

You can express angles in radians or degrees. The QBasic trigonometric routines support only radians. To convert from degrees to radians, use the following equation:

radians = 3.141593 * (degrees/180)

Example

pi = 3.141593
PRINT "Sine of pi", SIN(pi)
PRINT "Sine of pi/2", SIN(pi / 2)

Results in:

Sine of pi      -3.258414E-07
Sine of pi/2    1
