The Math.asin( ) method is used to return the arcsine of a number in radians. The Math.asin() method returns a numeric value between -pi/2 and pi/2 radians. The asin() is a static method of Math, therefore, it is always used as Math.asin(), rather than as a method of a Math object created.

Math.asin(x)=arcsin(x)=unique y where y belongs to [-pi/2;pi/2] such that sin(y)=x

Syntax:

Math.asin(value)

Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter as mentioned above and described below:

  • value: This parameter holds a number in radians whose arcsine you want to find.

Returns: The Math.asin() method returns the arcsine of the given number in radians. 

Below is an example of the Math asin( ) Method.

Example 1: In this example, we will return the asin of 1 using the Math asin( ) Method.

html




<script type="text/javascript">
    console.log("When 1 is passed as a parameter: "
                    + Math.asin(1));
</script>


Output:

When 1 is  passed as a parameter: 1.5707963267948966

Example 2: When -1 is passed as a parameter.

Javascript




<script type="text/javascript">
    console.log("When -1 is passed as a parameter: "
                + Math.asin(-1));
</script>


Output:

When -1 is  passed as a parameter: -1.5707963267948966

Example 3: When 2 is passed as a parameter.

Javascript




<script type="text/javascript">
    console.log("When 2 is passed as a parameter: "
                + Math.asin(2));
</script>


Output:

When 2 is  passed as a parameter: NaN

Example 4: When 0.5 is passed as a parameter.

Javascript




<script type="text/javascript">
    console.log("When 0.5 is passed as a parameter: "
                + Math.asin(0.5));
</script>


Output:

When 0.5 is  passed as a parameter: 0.5235987755982989
