Cosec 45 Degrees
The value of cosec 45 degrees is 1.4142135. . .. Cosec 45 degrees in radians is written as cosec (45° × π/180°), i.e., cosec (π/4) or cosec (0.785398. . .). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of cosec 45 degrees with examples.
 Cosec 45°: √2
 Cosec 45° in decimal: 1.4142135. . .
 Cosec (45 degrees): 1.4142135. . . or √2
 Cosec 45° in radians: cosec (π/4) or cosec (0.7853981 . . .)
What is the Value of Cosec 45 Degrees?
The value of cosec 45 degrees in decimal is 1.414213562. . .. Cosec 45 degrees can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (45 degrees) in radians (0.78539 . . .).
We know, using degree to radian conversion, θ in radians = θ in degrees × (pi/180°)
⇒ 45 degrees = 45° × (π/180°) rad = π/4 or 0.7853 . . .
∴ cosec 45° = cosec(0.7853) = √2 or 1.4142135. . .
Explanation:
For cosec 45 degrees, the angle 45° lies between 0° and 90° (First Quadrant). Since cosecant function is positive in the first quadrant, thus cosec 45° value = √2 or 1.4142135. . .
Since the cosecant function is a periodic function, we can represent cosec 45° as, cosec 45 degrees = cosec(45° + n × 360°), n ∈ Z.
⇒ cosec 45° = cosec 405° = cosec 765°, and so on.
Note: Since, cosecant is an odd function, the value of cosec(45°) = cosec(45°).
Methods to Find Value of Cosec 45 Degrees
The cosecant function is positive in the 1st quadrant. The value of cosec 45° is given as 1.41421. . .. We can find the value of cosec 45 degrees by:

 Using Trigonometric Functions
Cosec 45 Degrees Using Unit Circle
To find the value of cosec 45 degrees using the unit circle:
 Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form 45° angle with the positive xaxis.
 The cosec of 45 degrees equals the reciprocal of the ycoordinate(0.7071) of the point of intersection (0.7071, 0.7071) of unit circle and r.
Hence the value of cosec 45° = 1/y = 1.4142 (approx)
Cosec 45° in Terms of Trigonometric Functions
Using trigonometry formulas, we can represent the cosec 45 degrees as:
 ± 1/√(1cos²(45°))
 ± √(1 + tan²(45°))/tan 45°
 ± √(1 + cot²(45°))
 ± sec 45°/√(sec²(45°)  1)

Example 1: Find the value of 6 cosec(45°)/8 sec(45°).
Solution:
Using trigonometric identities, we know, cosec(45°) = sec(90°  45°) = sec 45°.
