atand

Inverse tangent in degrees

Syntax

Description

example

Y = atand(X) returns the inverse tangent (tan-1) of the elements of X in degrees. The function's domain and range include complex values. For real elements of X in the domain [-Inf, Inf], atand returns values in the range [-90, 90]. For complex values of X, atand returns complex values.

Examples

Inverse Tangent of Vector

x = [-50 -20 0 20 50];
y = atand(x)
y =

  -88.8542  -87.1376         0   87.1376   88.8542

The atand operation is element-wise when you pass a vector, matrix, or N-D array.

Inverse Tangent of Complex Value

atand(10+i)
ans =

  84.3450 + 0.5618i

Input Arguments

expand all

X — Tangent of anglescalar value | vector | matrix | N-D array

Tangent of angle, specified as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array. The atand operation is element-wise when X is non-scalar.

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Output Arguments

expand all

Y — Angle in degreesscalar value | vector | matrix | N-D array

Angle in degrees, returned as a real-valued or complex-valued scalar, vector, matrix, or N-D array of the same size as X.
