The cosecant function (csc) is the reciprocal of the sine function (sin) and is used in trigonometry to find the ratio of the hypotenuse to the opposite side of a right-angled triangle. The cosecant is defined as:

csc(x) = 1/sin(x)

To use this calculator, simply enter the angle in degrees or radians and click "Calculate". The calculator will output the cosecant value of the angle.

Here are some examples of how to use the cosecant function:

## Example 1:

Find the cosecant of 30 degrees.

Solution:

csc(30°) = 1/sin(30°) = 2

## Example 2:

Find the angle whose cosecant is 2.

Solution:

csc(x) = 2
sin(x) = 1/csc(x) = 1/2
x = sin-1(1/2) = 30°

Now you know how to use the cosecant function and its inverse to solve trigonometric problems. Use this calculator to check your work or save time in your calculations.
