The ASIN() function returns the arc-sine (inverse sine) of a value.

 

 

Format

 

ASIN(expr)

 

where

 

exprevaluates to a number or a numeric array.

 

 

The ASIN() function returns the arc-sine of expr. Angles are measured in degrees.

 

If expr is a numeric array (a dynamic array where all elements are numeric), the ASIN() function operates on each element in turn and returns a numeric array with the same structure as expr.

 

 

Example

 

ANGLE = ASIN(OPP / HYP)

 

This statement finds the angle with sine equal to the value of OPP / HYP and assigns this to variable ANGLE.
