FQL v4 will be decommissioned on June 30, 2025. Ensure that you complete your migration from FQL v4 to FQL v10 by that date. Fauna accounts created after August 21, 2024 must use FQL v10. These accounts will not be able to run FQL v4 queries or access the v4 Dashboard. For more details, see the v4 EOL announcement and migration guide. Contact support@fauna.com with any questions.

## 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`

Number

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:

``````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()[0].description,
))``````
``0.5235987755982989``
``````result = client.query(
q.asin(0.5)
)
print(result)``````
``0.5235987755982989``
``````result, err := client.Query(
f.Asin(0.5))

if err != nil {
fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
fmt.Println(result)
}``````
``0.5235987755982989``
``````try
{
Value result = await client.Query(
Asin(0.5)
);

Console.WriteLine(result);
}
catch (Exception e)
{
Console.WriteLine(\$"ERROR: {e.Message}");
}``````
