Owning Palette: Elementary & Special Functions and VIs

Requires: Base Development System. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.

Use this class of elementary functions to compute trigonometric functions and their inverses.

The VIs on this palette can return mathematics error codes.

Palette ObjectDescription
CosecantComputes the cosecant of x, where x is in radians. Cosecant is the reciprocal of sine.
CosineComputes the cosine of x, where x is in radians.
CotangentComputes the cotangent of x, where x is in radians. Cotangent is the reciprocal of tangent.
Inverse CosecantComputes the inverse cosecant of x.
Inverse CosineComputes the arccosine of x.
Inverse CotangentComputes the inverse cotangent of x.
Inverse SecantComputes the inverse secant of x.
Inverse SineComputes the arcsine of x.
Inverse TangentComputes the arctangent of x.
Inverse Tangent (2 Input)Computes the arctangent of y/x.
SecantComputes the secant of x, where x is in radians. Secant is the reciprocal of cosine.
SincComputes the sine of x divided by x, where x is in radians.
SineComputes the sine of x, where x is in radians.
Sine & CosineComputes both the sine and cosine of x, where x is in radians. Use this function only when you need both results.
TangentComputes the tangent of x, where x is in radians.
