The Cos() function returns the cosine of the given angle (in radians). The math library must be imported in order to use this function.

Syntax

result := math.Cos(angle)

Where result is the cosine value of angle, returned as a float, except under the following circumstances:

  • The result of Cos(-Inf) is NaN
  • The result of Cos(+Inf) is NaN
  • The result of Cos(NaN) is NaN

Example

The following calculates the cosine of angle and prints out the result:

package main
import (
"fmt"
"math"
)
func main() {
angle := math.Pi / 6
cosine := math.Cos(angle)
fmt.Printf("%.1f\n", cosine)
}

The output will be:

0.9

Codebyte Example

The following example is runnable and shows how the Cos() function handles infinite values.
