atan()

Return the arctangent of the argument.

Syntax

atan(tangent)

Parameter

Parameter

Definition

tangent

tangent argument*Valid Values* 
- ∞ ≤ tangent ≤ ∞

Description

The atan() function returns the arctangent of tangent, that is, the length in radians of the arc whose tangent is tangent. The output range for the atan() function is -p/2 ≤ atan() ≤ p/2.

Example

The following example uses atan() to verify the trigonometric identity: 

print("Arcsine(Arctangent) Identity Verification\n\n");
print(" tan() Expected Returned\n");
print("--------- --------- ---------\n"); 
tangent = -1.5;
while (tangent <= 1.5){
expect = tangent / sqrt(1 + pow(tangent,2)); 
printf("%+8.6f %+8.6f %+8.6f&#92;n",tangent,expect,sin(atan(tangent))); 
tangent = tangent + 0.1;
}
