Opposite & Adjacent Sides in a Right Angled Triangle
In the ΔABC right-angled at B, BC is the side opposite to ∠A, AC is the hypotenuse and AB is the side adjacent to ∠A.
For the right ΔABC, right-angled at ∠B, the trigonometric ratios of the ∠A are as follows:
- sin A=opposite side/hypotenuse=BC/AC
- cos A=adjacent side/hypotenuse=AB/AC
- tan A=opposite side/adjacent side=BC/AB
- cosec A=hypotenuse/opposite side=AC/BC
- sec A=hypotenuse/adjacent side=AC/AB
- cot A=adjacent side/opposite side=AB/BC
Visualization of Trigonometric Ratios Using a Unit Circle
Draw a circle of unit radius with the origin as the centre. Consider a line segment OP joining a point P on the circle to the centre which makes an angle θ with the x-axis. Draw a perpendicular from P to the x-axis to cut it at Q.
Relation between Trigonometric Ratios
- cosec θ =1/sin θ
- sec θ = 1/cos θ
- tan θ = sin θ/cos θ
- cot θ = cos θ/sin θ=1/tan θ

Trigonometric Ratios of Complementary Angles
Complementary Trigonometric ratios
If θ is an acute angle, its complementary angle is 90∘−θ. The following relations hold true for trigonometric ratios of complementary angles.
- sin (90∘− θ) = cos θ
- cos (90∘− θ) = sin θ
- tan (90∘− θ) = cot θ
- cot (90∘− θ) = tan θ
- cosec (90∘− θ) = sec θ
- sec (90∘− θ) = cosec θ
