Sin 89 Degrees
The value of sin 89 degrees is 0.9998476. . .. Sin 89 degrees in radians is written as sin (89° × π/180°), i.e., sin (1.553343. . .). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of sin 89 degrees with examples.
 Sin 89°: 0.9998476. . .
 Sin (89 degrees): 0.9998476. . .
 Sin 89° in radians: sin (1.5533430 . . .)
What is the Value of Sin 89 Degrees?
The value of sin 89 degrees in decimal is 0.999847695. . .. Sin 89 degrees can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (89 degrees) in radians (1.55334 . . .).
We know, using degree to radian conversion, θ in radians = θ in degrees × (pi/180°)
⇒ 89 degrees = 89° × (π/180°) rad = 1.5533 . . .
∴ sin 89° = sin(1.5533) = 0.9998476. . .
Explanation:
For sin 89 degrees, the angle 89° lies between 0° and 90° (First Quadrant). Since sine function is positive in the first quadrant, thus sin 89° value = 0.9998476. . .
Since the sine function is a periodic function, we can represent sin 89° as, sin 89 degrees = sin(89° + n × 360°), n ∈ Z.
⇒ sin 89° = sin 449° = sin 809°, and so on.
Note: Since, sine is an odd function, the value of sin(89°) = sin(89°).
