The sin function computes the sine of its argument .


The sin function returns the sine of complex number where the argument is expressed in radians (pi radians equals 180 degrees).


The sin function is used to compute the sine of a value.


The sin function is used to determine the sine of angle when the angle is complex. Do not use if an immediate type, such as a real number, would suffice. Since complex numbers are heap objects, they require more space and operations on these types are slower than on immediate types.




(sin num)

Arguments Name Type Description
Argument:numNumber A Number


Computes and returns the sin of the Number argument.


(sin angle)

Arguments Name Type Description
Argument:angleNumber The angle expressed in radians.


A complex number holding the sine of the angle.



Here are a number of links to Lambda coding examples which contain this instruction in various use cases.


Argument Types

Here are the links to the data types of the function arguments.


Here are also a number of links to functions having arguments with any of these data types.
