Google Sheets COS Function

This post will guide you how to use Google Sheets COS function with syntax and examples.

Description


The Google Sheets COS function returns the cosine of a given angle. If you want to supply an angle to COS function in degrees, then you need to multiply the angle by PI()/180. Or you can use the RADIANS function to the angle to radians.

The purpose of this function is used to get the cosine of an angle provided in radians in google sheet and it’s returned value is the cosine value.

The COS function is a build-in function in Google Sheets and it is categorized as a MATH function.

Syntax


The syntax of the COS function is as below:

= COS(number)

Where the COS function argument is:

  • numberThis is a required argument. A number that used to be calculate the cosine of an angle.

Note:

  • If your argument is in degrees, multiply it by PI()/180 or use the RADIANS function to convert it to radians.
