## Trigonometry functions

The main trigonometric functions are sine, cosine, and tangent, often written as sin(x), cos(x), and tan(x). The common thing for them is that they express the ratios between different sides of a right-angled triangle, from the point of view of the angle of interest, and thus some of them are transformations of the others. For example tan(x) = sin(x) / cos(x). Our trigonometric calculator supports all three major functions.

These functions have a lot of practical applications in geometry, physics, and computer science. The sine function is used to model sound waves, earthquake waves, and even temperature variations. The cosine has uses in audio, video, and image compression algorithms such as those used in JPEG, MP3, WMV, MPEG, and others. The tangent is used in measuring distances and paths, including in aviation.

In the figure above, sin(α) = a/c, cos(α) = b/c, while tan(α) = a/b.
