Parameters

Parameter

Description

number

Sine of an angle. The value must be between -1 and 1, inclusive.

Usage

The range of the result is -p/2 to p/2 radians. To convert degrees to radians, multiply degrees by p/180. To convert radians to degrees, multiply radians by 180/p.

Example

<h3>ASin Example</h3>
<!--- Output its arcsine value. --->
<cfif IsDefined("FORM.SinNum")>
<cfif IsNumeric(FORM.SinNum)>
<cfif FORM.SinNum LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO 1>
<cfif FORM.SinNum GREATER THAN OR EQUAL TO -1>
ASin(<cfoutput>#FORM.SinNum#</cfoutput>) =
<cfoutput>#ASin(FORM.sinNum)# Radians</cfoutput>
<br> or <br>ASin(<cfoutput>#FORM.SinNum#</cfoutput>) =
<cfoutput>
#ASin(FORM.sinNum) * 180/Pi()# Degrees
</cfoutput>
<cfelse>
<!--- If it is less than negative one, output an error message. --->
