How to use trigonometric calculation methods?

This example demonstrates how to use the trigonometric methods of the Math class. You can see the use of method such as Math.sin(), Math.cos(), Math.tan(), etc.

package com.javacoderanch.example.math;

public class TrigonometricExample {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        double radians = 1.0d;

        double sine = Math.sin(radians);
        double cosine = Math.cos(radians);
        double tan = Math.tan(radians);

        double asine = Math.asin(sine);
        double acosine = Math.acos(cosine);
        double atan = Math.atan(tan);

        System.out.println("Sine of " + radians + " = " + sine);
        System.out.println("Cosine of " + radians + " = " + cosine);
        System.out.println("Tangent of " + radians + " = " + tan);
        System.out.println("Arcsine of " + sine + " = " + asine);
        System.out.println("Arccosine of " + cosine + " = " + acosine);
        System.out.println("Arctangent of " + tan + " = " + atan);
    }
}

The output of the program are:

Sine of 1.0 = 0.8414709848078965
Cosine of 1.0 = 0.5403023058681398
Tangent of 1.0 = 1.5574077246549023
Arcsine of 0.8414709848078965 = 1.0
Arccosine of 0.5403023058681398 = 1.0
Arctangent of 1.5574077246549023 = 1.0
