### SIN(number)

Returns the sine of a number.

 number The number you want the sine of.

#### Remarks

 * This function is periodical with a period of 2PI.* The "number" is the angle in radians.* If "number" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned. Example 15.* If your argument is in degrees, multiply it by PI/180 to convert it to radians.* You can use the ASIN function to return the arc-sine. Example 14.* You can use the COS function to return the cosine.* You can use the TAN function to return the tangent.* You can use the DEGREES function to convert from radians to degrees.* For a working example refer to the Quant > Trigonometric Functions page.* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.office.com
