 Sin 495°: 0.7071067. . .
 Sin 495° in fraction: 1/√2
 Sin (495 degrees): 0.7071067. . .
 Sin 495° in radians: sin (11π/4) or sin (8.6393797 . . .)
What is the Value of Sin 495 Degrees?
The value of sin 495 degrees in decimal is 0.707106781. . .. Sin 495 degrees can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (495 degrees) in radians (8.63937 . . .).
We know, using degree to radian conversion, θ in radians = θ in degrees × (pi/180°)
⇒ 495 degrees = 495° × (π/180°) rad = 11π/4 or 8.6393 . . .
∴ sin 495° = sin(8.6393) = 1/√2 or 0.7071067. . .
Explanation:
For sin 495°, the angle 495° > 360°. Given the periodic property of the sine function, we can represent it as sin(495° mod 360°) = sin(135°). The angle 495°, coterminal to angle 135°, is located in the Second Quadrant(Quadrant II).
Since sine function is positive in the 2nd quadrant, thus sin 495 degrees value = 1/√2 or 0.7071067. . .
Similarly, sin 495° can also be written as, sin 495 degrees = (495° + n × 360°), n ∈ Z.
⇒ sin 495° = sin 855° = sin 1215°, and so on.
Note: Since, sine is an odd function, the value of sin(495°) = sin(495°).
Methods to Find Value of Sin 495 Degrees
The sine function is positive in the 2nd quadrant. The value of sin 495° is given as 0.70710. . .. We can find the value of sin 495 degrees by:
 Using Unit Circle
 Using Trigonometric Functions
Sin 495 Degrees Using Unit Circle
To find the value of sin 495 degrees using the unit circle, represent 495° in the form (1 × 360°) + 135° [∵ 495°>360°] ∵ sine is a periodic function, sin 495° = sin 135°.
 Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form a 135° or 495° angle with the positive xaxis.
 The sin of 495 degrees equals the ycoordinate(0.7071) of the point of intersection (0.7071, 0.7071) of unit circle and r.
Hence the value of sin 495° = y = 0.7071 (approx)
