Description

The C library function double asin(double x) returns the arc sine of x in radians.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for asin() function.

double asin(double x)

Parameters

  • x -- This is the floating point value in the interval [-1,+1].

Return Value

This function returns the arc sine of x, in the interval [-pi/2,+pi/2] radians.

Example

The following example shows the usage of asin() function.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>

#define PI 3.14159265

int main ()
{
   double x, ret, val;
   x = 0.9;
   val = 180.0 / PI;

   ret = asin(x) * val;
   printf("The arc sine of %lf is %lf degrees", x, ret);
   
   return(0);
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

The arc sine of 0.900000 is 64.190609 degrees
