## Description

The `Sin` function is a trigonometric function which calculates ratios of the lengths of the sides of right triangles. `Sin` returns the sine of a Number, which is the ratio of the side opposite to an acute angle in a right triangle to the hypotenuse.

## Parameters

Parameter Type Definition and Requirements

`value`

Number

The Number whose sine should be returned.

## Returns

A number which is the sine of `value`.

## Examples

The following query returns the sine of 0.5:

``````client.query(
q.Sin(0.5)
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error(
'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
err.name,
err.message,
err.errors()[0].description,
))``````
``0.479425538604203``
``````result = client.query(
q.sin(0.5)
)
print(result)``````
``0.479425538604203``
``````result, err := client.Query(
f.Sin(0.5))

if err != nil {
fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
fmt.Println(result)
}``````
``0.479425538604203``
``````try
{
Value result = await client.Query(
Sin(0.5)
);

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