tan

Purpose

Returns the tangent of its argument.

Format

y = tan(x)
Parameters:x (NxK matrix or N-dimensional array) – data
Returns:y (NxK matrix or N-dimensional array) – the tangent of the elements in x.

Examples

// Create an additive sequence 0.1, 0.2, 0.3...0.9
x = seqa(0.1, 0.1, 9);

y = tan(x);

The above code produces:

    0.1003346
    0.2027100
    0.3093362
    0.4227932
y = 0.5463024
    0.6841368
    0.8422883
    1.0296386
    1.2601582

Remarks

For real matrices, x should contain angles measured in radians.

To convert degrees to radians, multiply the degrees by \(π/180\).
