Sec 33 Degrees
The value of Sec 33 degrees is 1.1923632. . .. Sec 33 degrees in radians is written as sec (33° × π/180°), i.e., sec (11π/60) or sec (0.575958. . .). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of sec 33 degrees with examples.
 Sec 33° in decimal: 1.1923632. . .
 Sec (33 degrees): 1.1923632. . .
 Sec 33° in radians: sec (11π/60) or sec (0.5759586 . . .)
What is the Value of Sec 33 Degrees?
The value of sec 33 degrees in decimal is 1.192363292. . .. Sec 33 degrees can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (33 degrees) in radians (0.57595 . . .)
We know, using degree to radian conversion, θ in radians = θ in degrees × (pi/180°)
⇒ 33 degrees = 33° × (π/180°) rad = 11π/60 or 0.5759 . . .
∴ sec 33° = sec(0.5759) = 1.1923632. . .
Explanation:
For sec 33 degrees, the angle 33° lies between 0° and 90° (First Quadrant). Since secant function is positive in the first quadrant, thus sec 33° value = 1.1923632. . .
Since the secant function is a periodic function, we can represent sec 33° as, sec 33 degrees = sec(33° + n × 360°), n ∈ Z.
⇒ sec 33° = sec 393° = sec 753°, and so on.
Note: Since, secant is an even function, the value of sec(33°) = sec(33°).
Methods to Find Value of Sec 33 Degrees
The secant function is positive in the 1st quadrant. The value of sec 33° is given as 1.19236. . .. We can find the value of sec 33 degrees by:
 Using Unit Circle
 Using Trigonometric Functions
Sec 33 Degrees Using Unit Circle
To find the value of sec 33 degrees using the unit circle:
 Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form 33° angle with the positive xaxis.
 The sec of 33 degrees equals the reciprocal of the xcoordinate(0.8387) of the point of intersection (0.8387, 0.5446) of unit circle and r.
Hence the value of sec 33° = 1/x = 1.1924 (approx)
Sec 33° in Terms of Trigonometric Functions
Using trigonometry formulas, we can represent the sec 33 degrees as:
 ± 1/√(1  sin²(33°))
 ± √(1 + tan²(33°))
 ± √(1 + cot²(33°))/cot 33°
 ± cosec 33°/√(cosec²(33°)  1)
 1/cos 33°
Note: Since 33° lies in the 1st Quadrant, the final value of sec 33° will be positive.
We can use trigonometric identities to represent sec 33° as,
 sec(180°  33°) = sec 147°
 sec(180° + 33°) = sec 213°
 cosec(90° + 33°) = cosec 123°
 cosec(90°  33°) = cosec 57°

Examples Using Sec 33 Degrees

Example 1: Simplify: 5 (sec 33°/cosec 123°)
Solution:
We know sec 33° = cosec 123°
⇒ 5 sec 33°/cosec 123° = 5 (sec 33°/sec 33°)
= 5(1) = 5 
Example 2: Using the value of sec 33°, solve: (1 + tan²(33°)).
Solution:
We know, (1 + tan²(33°)) = (sec²(33°)) = 1.4217
⇒ (1 + tan²(33°)) = 1.4217 
Example 3: Find the value of sec 33° if cos 33° is 0.8386.
Solution:
Since, sec 33° = 1/cos 33°
⇒ sec 33° = 1/0.8386 = 1.1924
