# Secant Calculator

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.

Secant(rad) = 1 / Math.cos(a) Secant(°) = 1 / Math.cos(a / 57.2957795130823)

### Example:

Find the secant of an angle 60?

#### Sec x Calculation:

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.
