gives the sine of z.
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • The argument of Sin is assumed to be in radians. (Multiply by Degree to convert from degrees.)  »
  • Sin is automatically evaluated when its argument is a simple rational multiple of ; for more complicated rational multiples, FunctionExpand can sometimes be used.  »
  • For certain special arguments, Sin automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • Sin can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
  • Sin automatically threads over lists.
