tan()#

Calculates the ratio of the sine and cosine of an angle.

Examples#

example picture for tan()
def setup():
    a = 0
    for i in range(50):
        py5.line(2*i, 50, 2*i, 50+2*py5.tan(a))
        a += py5.TWO_PI/50

Description#

Calculates the ratio of the sine and cosine of an angle. This function expects the values of the angle parameter to be provided in radians (values from 0 to TWO_PI). Values are returned in the range infinity to -infinity.

This function makes a call to the numpy tan() function.

Signatures#

tan(
    angle: Union[float, npt.ArrayLike]  # angle in radians
) -> Union[float, npt.NDArray]
