JavaScript acos() Method

Definition and Usage

The acos() method returns the arccosine of a number as a numeric value value between 0 and PI radians.

Syntax

Math.acos(x)

Parameter Description
x Required. Must be a numeric value in the range -1 to 1


Tips and Notes

Note: If the parameter x is outside the range -1 to 1, the browser will return NaN.
Note: -1 will return the value of PI.

Example

In this example we will get the arccosine of different numbers:

<script type="text/javascript">
document.write(Math.acos(0.64) + "<br />");
document.write(Math.acos(0) + "<br />");
document.write(Math.acos(-1) + "<br />");
document.write(Math.acos(1) + "<br />");
document.write(Math.acos(2));
</script>

The output of the code above will be:

0.8762980611683406
1.5707963267948965
3.141592653589793
