Cot 600 Degrees
The value of cot 600 degrees is 0.5773502. . .. Cot 600 degrees in radians is written as cot (600° × π/180°), i.e., cot (10π/3) or cot (10.471975. . .). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of cot 600 degrees with examples.
 Cot 600°: 1/√3
 Cot 600° in decimal: 0.5773502. . .
 Cot (600 degrees): 0.5773502. . . or (1/√3)
 Cot 600° in radians: cot (10π/3) or cot (10.4719755 . . .)
What is the Value of Cot 600 Degrees?
The value of cot 600 degrees in decimal is 0.577350269. . .. Cot 600 degrees can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (600 degrees) in radians (10.47197 . . .)
We know, using degree to radian conversion, θ in radians = θ in degrees × (pi/180°)
⇒ 600 degrees = 600° × (π/180°) rad = 10π/3 or 10.4719 . . .
∴ cot 600° = cot(10.4719) = 1/√3 or 0.5773502. . .
Explanation:
For cot 600°, the angle 600° > 360°. We can represent cot 600° as, cot(600° mod 360°) = cot(240°). The angle 600°, coterminal to angle 240°, is located in the Third Quadrant(Quadrant III).
Since cotangent function is positive in the 3rd quadrant, thus cot 600 degrees value = 1/√3 or 0.5773502. . .
Similarly, given the periodic property of cot 600°, it can also be written as, cot 600 degrees = (600° + n × 180°), n ∈ Z.
⇒ cot 600° = cot 780° = cot 960°, and so on.
Note: Since, cotangent is an odd function, the value of cot(600°) = cot(600°).

Cot 600° in Terms of Trigonometric Functions
Using trigonometry formulas, we can represent the cot 600 degrees as:
 cos(600°)/sin(600°)
 ± cos 600°/√(1  cos²(600°))
 ± √(1  sin²(600°))/sin 600°
 ± 1/√(sec²(600°)  1)
 ± √(cosec²(600°)  1)

Note: Since 600° lies in the 3rd Quadrant, the final value of cot 600° will be positive.
We can use trigonometric identities to represent cot 600° as,
 tan (90°  600°) = tan(510°)
 tan (90° + 600°) = tan 690°
 cot (180°  600°) = cot(420°)
Cot 600 Degrees Using Unit Circle
To find the value of cot 600 degrees using the unit circle, represent 600° in the form (1 × 360°) + 240° [∵ 600°>360°] ∵ The angle 600° is coterminal to 240° angle and also cotangent is a periodic function, cot 600° = cot 240°.
 Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form 240° or 600° angle with the positive xaxis.
 The cot of 600 degrees equals the xcoordinate(0.5) divided by ycoordinate(0.866) of the point of intersection (0.5, 0.866) of unit circle and r.
Hence the value of cot 600° = x/y = 0.5774 (approx).
