Description

The method converts rectangular coordinates (x, y) to polar coordinate (r, theta) and returns theta.

Syntax

double atan2(double y, double x)

Parameters

Here is the detail of parameters −

  • X − X co-ordinate in double data type.

  • Y − Y co-ordinate in double data type.

Return Value

  • This method returns theta from polar coordinate (r, theta).

Example

public class Test { 

   public static void main(String args[]) {
      double x = 45.0;
      double y = 30.0;

      System.out.println( Math.atan2(x, y) );
   }
}

This will produce the following result −
