Sine

 

(sin), a trigonometric function. The sine of an acute angle in a right triangle is the ratio of the length of the leg opposite the angle to the length of the hypotenuse. The Indian mathematicians used the word jiva, whose literal meaning is “bowstring,” for the sine. The Arabs rendered jiva as jiba and subsequently used the reading jaib, which is a common word in Arabic meaning “curve,” “bosom,” or “fold” and corresponding to the Latin word sinus.

sine

[sīn]
(mathematics)
The sine of an angle A in a right triangle with hypotenuse of length c given by the ratio a / c, where a is the length of the side opposite A ; more generally, the sine function assigns to any real number A the ordinate of the point on the unit circle obtained by moving from (1,0) counterclockwise A units along the circle, or clockwise | A | units if A is less than 0. Denoted sin A.

sine

of an angle
a. a trigonometric function that in a right-angled triangle is the ratio of the length of the opposite side to that of the hypotenuse
b. a function that in a circle centred at the origin of a Cartesian coordinate system is the ratio of the ordinate of a point on the circumference to the radius of the circle

sine

In a right triangle, the ratio of the side opposite an acute angle (less than 90 degrees) and the hypotenuse. The cosine is the ratio between the adjacent side and the hypotenuse. These angular functions are used to compute circular movements.

For the period from the maximum to the transition point, the sine curve used is sometimes treated as a the second quadrant of the same sine curve used for the period up to the maximum (Parton and Logan 1981; Goudriaan and van Laar 1994), although others have preferred a separate sine curve with a different phase length for this section (Cesaraccio et al.
