GET Cosecant Value using CSC Function in Excel

The CSC function in Excel calculates and returns the cosecant of a given radians. Cosecant is reciprocal of sine .

Trigonometric Function in ExcelCOSEC(θ) =  Hypotenuse / Opposite = c/a

Cosecant of the angle θ, is the ratio of the hypotenuse side – c to the opposite side -a.

 

Syntax of CSC Function in Excel

CSC(number)

Where Argument number is angle in radians which you need to calculate the cosecant of.

NOTE: If your angle is in degrees, you will need to convert it into radians before supplying it to the CSC Function with the help of Radians function

=RADIANS( degrees )
