TAN(radians)

TAN Returns tangent.
radians A numeric constant, variable or expression for the angle in radians. p is a constant which represents the ratio of the circumference and radius of a circle. There are 2p radians (or 360 degrees) in a circle.

The TAN procedure returns the trigonometric tangent of an angle measured in radians. The tangent is the ratio of the angle's opposite side divided by its adjacent side.

Return Data Type:     REAL

Example:

PI        EQUATE(3.1415926535898)     !The value of PI

Rad2Deg   EQUATE(57.295779513082)     !Number of degrees in a radian

Deg2Rad   EQUATE(0.0174532925199)     !Number of radians in a degree

CODE

Angle = 45 * Deg2Rad                 !Translate 45 degrees to Radians

TangentAngle = TAN(Angle)            !Get the tangent of 45 degree angle
