# Tangent Calculator

Tangent is defined as a line or plane that intersects a curve or a curved surface at exactly one point. The **tangent line **of a curve at a given point is a line that just touches the curve (function) at that point. The tangent line in calculus may touch the curve at any other point(s) and it also may cross the graph at some other point(s) as well.

## What is Tangent Calculator?

'Tangent Calculator' is an online tool that helps to calculate the tangent value for a given angle theta. This **Tangent Calculator** helps you to calculate the tangent value for a given angle theta in a few seconds.

### Tangent Calculator

**NOTE:** Enter angle theta between -360° to 360° only.

## How to Use Tangent Calculator?

Please follow the steps below to find the tangent value for a given angle theta:

**Step 1:**Enter the angle theta (in degrees) in the given input box.**Step 2:**Click on the**"Calculate"**button to find the tangent value for a given angle theta.**Step 3:**Click on the**"Reset"**button to clear the fields and find the tangent value for the different angles.

## How to Find Tangent Ratio?

The tangent function is defined as the ratio of the length of the opposite side to that of the length of the adjacent side in a right-angled triangle. The sign is a trigonometric function of an angle. It is denoted as tanθ, where θ is the angle between the two sides.

**Solved Examples on Tangent Calculator**

**Example 1:**

Find the tangent value if the θ = 45°

**Solution:**

Given θ = 45°

tan 45° = 1

**Example 2:**

Find the tangent value if the θ = 30°

**Solution:**

Given θ = 30°

tan 30° = 1/√3

**Example 3:**

Find the tangent value if the θ = 60°

**Solution:**

Given θ = 60°

tan 60° = √3

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the tangent values for the following:

- θ = 60°
- θ = 150°
