asin
asin(x)
Compute the inverse sine of x
, where the output is in radians
Examples
In the Julia programming language, the asin
function is used to compute the inverse sine of a given value x
, where the output is in radians. Here are some examples of how to use the asin
function:

Compute the inverse sine of a number:
julia> asin(0.5) 0.5235987755982989
This example calculates the inverse sine of
0.5
, which is approximately0.5235987755982989
radians. 
Handle negative input:
julia> asin(0.8) 0.9272952180016122
It computes the inverse sine of
0.8
, which results in0.9272952180016122
radians.  Use variables as input:
julia> x = 0.707; julia> asin(x) 0.7753974966107531
Here, the variable
x
is used as the input to compute the inverse sine.
Common mistake example:
julia> asin(2)
ERROR: DomainError with 2.0:
asin will only return values in the range [π/2, π/2]
In this example, the input value 2
is outside the valid range ([1, 1]
) for the asin
function. It's important to ensure that the input value falls within the appropriate domain to avoid such errors.
