In trigonometry, secant is the ratio of hypotenuse to the shorter side adjacent to an acute angle in a right angled triangle. Secant function is reciprocal of cosine function. Find the secant of an angle using the below online Secant Calculator. This Sec x calculator provides the corresponding values of the angles in secant radians and secant degrees. Sec x always goes to infinity when cosine function is zero, since they both are inverted functions.
Find the secant of an angle 60?
Sec(60) = -1.05 radians
Sec (60) = 2 degrees
In geometrical terms, a secant is defined as a straight line that intersects a curve at two or more points. In trigonometry, the inverse secant function is also known as arcsec (sec-1). Therefore, the value of sec and arcsec will be inverted.
