Using the Sin Function
In this tutorial you will learn how to use the Sin Function.
The Sin function returns a Double specifying the sine of an angle.
=Sin( number )
number any valid number expression that expresses an angle in radians
The Sin function takes an angle and returns the ratio of two sides of a right triangle. The ratio is the length of the side opposite the angle divided by the length of the hypotenuse.
The result lies in the range -1 to 1.
To convert degrees to radians, multiply degrees by pi/180. To convert radians to degrees, multiply radians by 180/pi.
In this example we will use 1.
The result is 0.841470984807897.
The results using a Query would be
In a Form you could set the Default Value of a Textbox to
In a Form add a TEXTBOX control and rename it "txtSin", then you could add the following in the Load Event.
Private Sub Form_Load()
txtSin = Sin(1)
