Trigonometric and Hyperbolic Functions in the Standard Units Environment

Description

 • In the Standard Units environment, the arguments for the trigonometric or hyperbolic functions can be unit-free, in which case the argument is assumed to be given in terms of radians, or multiplied by a unit of angle with the dimension length/length(radius).  An error is returned if the dimension of the argument is not an angle.
 • If the argument has a unit of angle, it is converted to a free expression in the call to the corresponding global function.  Therefore, a call to sin(7*deg) returns as sin(7/180*Pi), because $1$ degree equals $\frac{\mathrm{\pi }}{180}$ radians.
 • For other properties, see the global functions in the trig help page.

Examples

Notes:

 – To enter a unit in 2-D Math input, select the unit from the appropriate Units palette. If the unit you want is not there, select $\mathrm{unit}$ and then enter the unit.
 – When you edit a unit, double brackets appear around it.
