Description

The java.lang.Math.atan(double a) returns the arc tangent of an angle, in the range of -pi/2 through pi/2. Special cases −

  • If the argument is NaN, then the result is NaN.

  • If the argument is zero, then the result is a zero with the same sign as the argument.

A result must be within 1 ulp of the correctly rounded result. Results must be semi-monotonic.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.Math.atan() method

public static double atan(double a)

Parameters

a − the value whose arc tangent is to be returned.

Return Value

This method returns the arc tangent of the argument.

Exception

NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of lang.Math.atan() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class MathDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // get a variable x which is equal to PI/2
      double x = Math.PI / 2;

      // convert x to radians
      x = Math.toRadians(x);

      // get the arc tangent of x
      System.out.println("Math.atan(" + x + ")" + Math.atan(x));
   }
}

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

Math.atan(0.027415567780803774)0.0274087022410345
