Python math.asin() – Arc / Inverse Sine

Contents

Python math.asin()

math.asin() function returns the inverse sine of given number.

The return value is angle in radians.

Syntax

The syntax to call asin() function is

``math.asin(x)``

where

Note: If x is outside the allowed range, then asin(x) raises a ValueError.

Examples

In the following example, we find the inverse sine of 0.5 using asin() function of math module.

Python Program

``````import math

x = 0.5
result = math.asin(x)
Run Code Copy

Output

``asin(x) : 0.5235987755982988 radians``

We can convert the returned radians into degrees using math.degrees() function.

In the following example, we find the inverse sine of 0.5 using asin() function and convert this returned radians to degrees.

Python Program

``````import math

x = 0.5
result = math.asin(x)
result = math.degrees(result)
print('asin(x) :', result, 'degrees')``````
Run Code Copy

Output

``asin(x) : 29.999999999999996 degrees``
