ArcSinDegree

Contributed by: Paco Jain (Wolfram Research)

Computes the inverse sine of a number and returns a result in degrees

ResourceFunction["ArcSinDegree"][x]

computes the inverse sine of x in degrees

Details and Options

Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
ArcSinDegree[x] is undefined for x = 0.
ArcCSinDegree[x] is undefined outside the range -1 to 1.
ArcSinDegree[x] always returns a value in the range -90 to 90.
For certain special arguments, ArcSinDegree automatically evaluates to exact values.
ArcSinDegree can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
ArcSinDegree automatically threads over lists.

Examples

Basic Examples

Compute the inverse sine of a number:

In[1]:=
ResourceFunction["ArcSinDegree"][1]
Out[1]=

Plot over a given range of values:

In[2]:=
Plot[ResourceFunction["ArcSinDegree"][x], {x, -2, 2}]
Out[2]=

Scope

Evaluate numerically:

In[3]:=
ResourceFunction["ArcSinDegree"][0.56]
Out[3]=

Evaluate to high precision:

In[4]:=
N[ResourceFunction["ArcSinDegree"][-2/10], 50]
Out[4]=
