Sin 360 Degrees
The value of sin 360 degrees is 0. Sin 360 degrees in radians is written as sin (360° × π/180°), i.e., sin (2π) or sin (6.283185. . .). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of sin 360 degrees with examples.
 Sin 360°: 0
 Sin (360 degrees): 0
 Sin 360° in radians: sin (2π) or sin (6.2831853 . . .)
What is the Value of Sin 360 Degrees?
The value of sin 360 degrees is 0. Sin 360 degrees can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (360 degrees) in radians (6.28318 . . .).
We know, using degree to radian conversion, θ in radians = θ in degrees × (pi/180°)
⇒ 360 degrees = 360° × (π/180°) rad = 2π or 6.2831 . . .
∴ sin 360° = sin(6.2831) = 0
Explanation:
For sin 360 degrees, the angle 360° lies on the positive xaxis. Thus, sin 360° value = 0
Since the sine function is a periodic function, we can represent sin 360° as, sin 360 degrees = sin(360° + n × 360°), n ∈ Z.
⇒ sin 360° = sin 720° = sin 1080°, and so on.
Note: Since, sine is an odd function, the value of sin(360°) = sin(360°) = 0.
Methods to Find Value of Sin 360 Degrees
The value of sin 360° is given as 0. We can find the value of sin 360 degrees by:
 Using Trigonometric Functions
 Using Unit Circle
Sin 360° in Terms of Trigonometric Functions
Using trigonometry formulas, we can represent the sin 360 degrees as:
 ± √(1cos²(360°))
 ± tan 360°/√(1 + tan²(360°))
 ± 1/√(1 + cot²(360°))
 ± √(sec²(360°)  1)/sec 360°
 1/cosec 360°
Note: Since 360° lies on the positive xaxis, the final value of sin 360° will be 0.
We can use trigonometric identities to represent sin 360° as,
 sin(180°  360°) = sin(180°)
 sin(180° + 360°) = sin 540°
 cos(90°  360°) = cos(270°)
 cos(90° + 360°) = cos 450°
Sin 360 Degrees Using Unit Circle
To find the value of sin 360 degrees using the unit circle:
 Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form a 360° or 0° angle with the positive xaxis.
 The sin of 360 degrees equals the ycoordinate(0) of the point of intersection (1, 0) of unit circle and r.
Hence the value of sin 360° = y = 0
