Cot 13 Degrees
The value of cot 13 degrees is 4.3314758. . .. Cot 13 degrees in radians is written as cot (13° × π/180°), i.e., cot (0.226892. . .). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of cot 13 degrees with examples.
 Cot 13° in decimal: 4.3314758. . .
 Cot (13 degrees): 4.3314758. . .
 Cot 13° in radians: cot (0.2268928 . . .)
What is the Value of Cot 13 Degrees?
The value of cot 13 degrees in decimal is 4.331475874. . .. Cot 13 degrees can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (13 degrees) in radians (0.22689 . . .)
We know, using degree to radian conversion, θ in radians = θ in degrees × (pi/180°)
⇒ 13 degrees = 13° × (π/180°) rad = 0.2268 . . .
∴ cot 13° = cot(0.2268) = 4.3314758. . .
Explanation:
For cot 13 degrees, the angle 13° lies between 0° and 90° (First Quadrant). Since cotangent function is positive in the first quadrant, thus cot 13° value = 4.3314758. . .
Since the cotangent function is a periodic function, we can represent cot 13° as, cot 13 degrees = cot(13° + n × 180°), n ∈ Z.
⇒ cot 13° = cot 193° = cot 373°, and so on.
Note: Since, cotangent is an odd function, the value of cot(13°) = cot(13°).
Methods to Find Value of Cot 13 Degrees
The cotangent function is positive in the 1st quadrant. The value of cot 13° is given as 4.33147. . . We can find the value of cot 13 degrees by:
 Using Unit Circle
 Using Trigonometric Functions
Cot 13 Degrees Using Unit Circle
To find the value of cot 13 degrees using the unit circle:
 Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form 13° angle with the positive xaxis.
 The cot of 13 degrees equals the xcoordinate(0.9744) divided by ycoordinate(0.225) of the point of intersection (0.9744, 0.225) of unit circle and r.
Hence the value of cot 13° = x/y = 4.3315 (approx).
Cot 13° in Terms of Trigonometric Functions
Using trigonometry formulas, we can represent the cot 13 degrees as:
 cos(13°)/sin(13°)
 ± cos 13°/√(1  cos²(13°))
 ± √(1  sin²(13°))/sin 13°
 ± 1/√(sec²(13°)  1)
 ± √(cosec²(13°)  1)
