Trigonometric and Hyperbolic Functions in the Standard Units Environment

 

Description

Examples

Description

• 

In the Standard Units environment, the arguments for the trigonometric or hyperbolic functions can be unit-free, in which case the argument is assumed to be given in terms of radians, or multiplied by a unit of angle with the dimension length/length(radius).  An error is returned if the dimension of the argument is not an angle.

• 

If the argument has a unit of angle, it is converted to a free expression in the call to the corresponding global function.  Therefore, a call to sin(7*deg) returns as sin(7/180*Pi), because 1 degree equals π180 radians.

• 

For other properties, see the global functions in the trig help page.

Notes: 

– 

To enter a unit in 2-D Math input, select the unit from the appropriate Units palette. If the unit you want is not there, select unit and then enter the unit.

– 

In Maple 2015 and later versions, the double brackets around a unit are not displayed unless you are editing the unit.
