Tangent Calculator

The Tangent calculator is used to calculate the tangent of the input angle (x). It has a single text field where you will enter the value and gives you options where you select the angle type. It can either be in degrees or radians. After you have filled these fields completely, click on the equal sign (=) or the ‘Calculate’ button to initiate the conversion. The results will be displayed in the bottom platform of the calculator below the two controls. The ‘Reset’ button is used to erase all the previous calculations from the text fields. It is the quickest way of resetting the calculator when performing new calculations.

For example

Find the Tan of 60°

Solution
Enter 60 in the first text filed and select the degrees as an angle type. Click the ‘Calculate’ button to execute the calculation.

The result will be displayed as;

=1.73205081

You can also use ‘e’ to indicate the scientific notation. For example, the Tan of 3e2 degrees Celsius will be -1.73205081

The Inverse Tangent Calculator performs the opposite of the Tangent Calculator. It has a single text field where you enter the tangent value. You have to select the angle type as it specifies the expected results. You can either select the degrees or radians. Afterwards, click the ‘Calculate’ button or the equal sign to perform the conversion.

For example;

Determine the inverse tangent of 1.73205081 in degrees.

Solution;
Enter the value 1.73205081 in the blank text field and then select the angle type. Afterwards, click the ‘Calculate’ button to give you the result of the tangent value.

The result will be displayed as; 60°.

You can also determine the value in radians by selecting the options provided. The result will be displayed as; 1.04719755. The calculator works effectively and gives accurate results depending on the values entered in the text field.
