 Cos 930°: 0.8660254. . .
 Cos 930° in fraction: √(3)/2
 Cos (930 degrees): 0.8660254. . .
 Cos 930° in radians: cos (31π/6) or cos (16.2315620 . . .)
What is the Value of Cos 930 Degrees?
The value of cos 930 degrees in decimal is 0.866025403. . .. Cos 930 degrees can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (930 degrees) in radians (16.23156 . . .)
We know, using degree to radian conversion, θ in radians = θ in degrees × (pi/180°)
⇒ 930 degrees = 930° × (π/180°) rad = 31π/6 or 16.2315 . . .
∴ cos 930° = cos(16.2315) = √(3)/2 or 0.8660254. . .
Explanation:
For cos 930°, the angle 930° > 360°. Given the periodic property of the cosine function, we can represent it as cos(930° mod 360°) = cos(210°). The angle 930°, coterminal to angle 210°, is located in the Third Quadrant(Quadrant III).
Since cosine function is negative in the 3rd quadrant, thus cos 930 degrees value = √(3)/2 or 0.8660254. . .
Similarly, cos 930° can also be written as, cos 930 degrees = (930° + n × 360°), n ∈ Z.
⇒ cos 930° = cos 1290° = cos 1650°, and so on.
Note: Since, cosine is an even function, the value of cos(930°) = cos(930°).

Cos 930 Degrees Using Unit Circle
To find the value of cos 930 degrees using the unit circle, represent 930° in the form (2 × 360°) + 210° [∵ 930°>360°] ∵ cosine is a periodic function, cos 930° = cos 210°.
 Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form 210° or 930° angle with the positive xaxis.
 The cos of 930 degrees equals the xcoordinate(0.866) of the point of intersection (0.866, 0.5) of unit circle and r.
Hence the value of cos 930° = x = 0.866 (approx)
