tand

Tangent of argument in degrees

Description

example

Y = tand(X) returns the tangent of the elements of X, which are expressed in degrees.

Examples

collapse all

tand(90)
ans = Inf
tan(pi/2)
ans = 1.6331e+16

tand(90) is infinite, whereas tan(pi/2) is large but finite.

z = [180+i 15+2i 10+3i];
y = tand(z)
y = 1×3 complex

   0.0000 + 0.0175i   0.2676 + 0.0374i   0.1758 + 0.0539i

Input Arguments

collapse all

Angle in degrees, specified as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array. The tand operation is element-wise when X is nonscalar.

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Output Arguments

collapse all

Tangent of angle, returned as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array of the same size as X.
