Tan 2pi
The value of tan 2pi is 0. Tan 2pi radians in degrees is written as tan ((2π) × 180°/π), i.e., tan (360°). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of tan 2pi with examples.
 Tan 2pi: 0
 Tan (2pi): 0
 Tan 2pi in degrees: tan (360°)
What is the Value of Tan 2pi?
The value of tan 2pi is 0. Tan 2pi can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (2pi) in degrees (360°).
We know, using radian to degree conversion, θ in degrees = θ in radians × (180°/pi)
⇒ 2pi radians = 2pi × (180°/pi) = 360° or 360 degrees
∴ tan 2pi = tan 2π = tan(360°) = 0
Explanation:
We can represent tan 2pi as, tan(2pi mod 2pi) = tan(0). For tan 2pi, the angle 2pi lies on the positive xaxis. Thus, tan 2pi value = 0
Since the tangent function is a periodic function, we can represent tan 2pi as, tan 2pi = tan(2pi + n × pi), n ∈ Z.
⇒ tan 2pi = tan 3pi = tan 4pi , and so on.
Note: Since, tangent is an odd function, the value of tan(2pi) = tan(2pi) = 0.
Methods to Find Value of Tan 2pi
The value of tan 2pi is given as 0. We can find the value of tan 2pi by:
 Using Trigonometric Functions
 Using Unit Circle
Tan 2pi in Terms of Trigonometric Functions
Using trigonometry formulas, we can represent the tan 2pi as:
 sin(2pi)/cos(2pi)
 ± sin(2pi)/√(1  sin²(2pi))
 ± √(1  cos²(2pi))/cos(2pi)
 ± 1/√(cosec²(2pi)  1)
 ± √(sec²(2pi)  1)
 1/cot(2pi)
Note: Since 2pi lies on the positive xaxis, the final value of tan 2pi is 0.
We can use trigonometric identities to represent tan 2pi as,
 cot(pi/2  2pi) = cot(3pi/2)
 cot(pi/2 + 2pi) = cot 5pi/2
 tan (pi  2pi) = tan(pi)
Tan 2pi Using Unit Circle
To find the value of tan 2π using the unit circle:
 Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form 0 or 2pi angle with the positive xaxis.
 The tan of 2pi equals the ycoordinate(0) divided by the xcoordinate(1) of the point of intersection (1, 0) of unit circle and r.
Hence the value of tan 2pi = y/x = 0

Examples Using Tan 2pi

Example 1: Find the value of tan 2pi if sin 2pi is 0 and cos 2pi is 1.
Solution:
Since, tan 2pi = sin 2pi/cos(2pi)
⇒ tan 2pi = 0 
Example 2: Using the value of tan 2pi, solve: (sec²(2pi)  1).

Example 3: Simplify: 7 (tan(2pi)/cot(pi/4))
Solution:
We know tan 2pi = 0 and cot(pi/4) = 1
⇒ 7 tan(2pi)/cot(pi/4) = 0
