Cosecant Formula

When the length of the hypotenuse is divided by the length of the opposite side, it gives the Cosecant of an angle in a right triangle. It is denoted as Cosec, and the formula for Cosecant is:

The formula for Cosec x

Cosec X = \(\frac{Hypotenuse}{Opposite Side}\)

You know that there are six trigonometric functions and amongst these, Cosecant, cotangent, and cosecant are hardly used.

Cosecant is the reciprocal of Sin, Cosec x = \(\frac{1}{SinX}\)

Examples of Cosecant x Formula

Example 1: Find Cosec X if Sin x = 4/7

Solution: As Cosec X = 1/ Sin X

=1/4/7

=7/4

So, Cosec X = 74
