# How to Use Excel SIN Function?

Excel is a spreadsheet program that is developed for WindowsMacAndroid, and iOS. It helps to perform calculations on your PC. The purpose of this software is to do complicated calculations which are difficult to do manually. With the help of this spreadsheet program, you can insertorganizemaintainmanage, and calculate data.

In this tutorial, we will guide you to learn the usage of Excel SIN Function with its syntax, explanation, and examples. Get an official version of MS Excel from the following link:

## Explanation of SIN Function

• It is one of the built-in functions in Microsoft Excel.
• This function returns the Sine values of the given (angle) radians.
• For example, RADIANS(0.785) returns the sine value as 0.707

## Syntax

• Here, you will see the syntax of the SIN function.
• To apply this function on your spreadsheet, you have to select a cell and enter the formula in the following format.
• Once you enter the formula, just click on the button to get the result.

=SIN(number)

Argument Explanation

Number – The angle in radians to which you need to find the sine value.

Note:
If the argument is a non-numeric value (letters and special characters) and then it returns #VALUE! Error.

## Practical Examples

Let’s see an example to know how SIN Function works in the Excel spreadsheet.

• Initially, you have to open your Excel workbook on your PC and launch a worksheet that has data.
• For example, we have given the degree values in Column B, and their corresponding radians in Column C.
• Here, we will get the Sin value of the given radians in Column E using the SIN function.
• Then, you have to enter the formula in the cell as shown below to get the result.
• After entering the formula, you need to click the button to get the output, as shown below. You can drag down the cell to fill the remaining cells.

## Input that Causes Error

• If the argument is a non-numeric value (letters and special characters) and then it returns #VALUE! Error.
