Excel SIN Function

How to Find the sine of an angle given in radians using excel.

Want to learn more about how to find the sine of the given angle in radians using excel spreadsheet?? This post will give you an overview of how to use SIN  formula functions returns the sine of an angle given in radians using excel.

Syntax(Generic Formula):

=SIN(Value)

Value: The angles (in radians) for which you want the sine. It’s so easy to understand and very easy to use.

Example and how to SIN works

In Excel, if you want to find the sine of an angel then we use SIN function, it is very easy to use but there you must remember for using SIN function angle must be in radian not in degree.

Figure1: Example of returns the sine of an angle given in radians

To returns the sine of an angle given in radians, you can use the SIN function. In the example selected cell shown, the formula in C6 is:

=SIN(RADIANS(50))

The SIN function in Excel returns the sine of an angle given in radians. If angle to SIN in degrees, then multiply the angle value by PI()/180 for convert into radians or use the Excel RADIANS function.

Converting angle from Degrees to Radians:

If your given angle is in degrees, then it is important to convert this angle into radians before supplying it to the SIN function.

It can be done by using the Excel radians function:

=RADIANS( angle in degree )

As we used in the previous example
