Enter any angle into the cosecant calculator. The calculator will display the result of that cosecant, also known as 1/sine(x).
The following formula is used to calculate the value of a cosecant of an angle.
CSC(x) = 1/sin(x)
- Where CSC is the cosecant
- x is the angle in degrees or radians
As you can see from the equation above, the cosecant is equal to 1 divided by the sin of the same angle.
A cosecant is defined as the inverse value of the sine of a value.
How to calculate cosecant?
How to calculate cosecant
- Determine the angle you wish to evaluate
Calculate or measure the angle to take the cosecant.
- Take the sin of the angle
Take the sine value of that angle.
- Calculate the cosecant
Divide 1 by the sine value calculated in step 2 to determine the cosecant.
A cosecant is the inverse value of the trigonometric sine function.
