``Asin( value )``
``Asin( value )``
``asin( value )``
``Asin( value )``

## Description

The `Asin` function is a trigonometric function which calculates ratios of the lengths of the sides of right triangles. `Asin` returns the arc sine of a number.

## Parameters

Parameter Type Definition and Requirements

`value`

The Number whose arc sine should be returned.

## Returns

A Number which is the arc sine of `value`.

## Examples

The following query returns the arc sine of 0.5:

``````try
{
Value result = await client.Query(
Asin(0.5)
);

Console.WriteLine(result);
}
catch (Exception e)
{
Console.WriteLine(\$"ERROR: {e.Message}");
}``````
``DoubleV(0.5235987755982989)``
``````result, err := client.Query(
f.Asin(0.5))

if err != nil {
fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
fmt.Println(result)
}``````
``0.5235987755982989``
``````System.out.println(
client.query(
Asin(Value(0.5))
).get());``````
``0.5235987755982989``
``````client.query(
q.Asin(0.5)
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error(
'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
err.name,
err.message,
err.errors().description,
))``````
``0.5235987755982989``
``````result = client.query(
q.asin(0.5)
)
print(result)``````
