Sin 3pi/4

The value of sin 3pi/4 is 0.7071067. . .. Sin 3pi/4 radians in degrees is written as sin ((3π/4) × 180°/π), i.e., sin (135°). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of sin 3pi/4 with examples.

  • Sin 3pi/4: 1/√2
  • Sin 3pi/4 in decimal: 0.7071067. . .
  • Sin (-3pi/4): -0.7071067. . . or -(1/√2)
  • Sin 3pi/4 in degrees: sin (135°)

What is the Value of Sin 3pi/4?

The value of sin 3pi/4 in decimal is 0.707106781. . .. Sin 3pi/4 can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (3pi/4) in degrees (135°).

We know, using radian to degree conversion, θ in degrees = θ in radians × (180°/pi)
⇒ 3pi/4 radians = 3pi/4 × (180°/pi) = 135° or 135 degrees
∴ sin 3pi/4 = sin 3π/4 = sin(135°) = 1/√2 or 0.7071067. . .

Sin 3pi/4

Explanation:

For sin 3pi/4, the angle 3pi/4 lies between pi/2 and pi (Second Quadrant). Since sine function is positive in the second quadrant, thus sin 3pi/4 value = 1/√2 or 0.7071067. . .
Since the sine function is a periodic function, we can represent sin 3pi/4 as, sin 3pi/4 = sin(3pi/4 + n × 2pi), n ∈ Z.
⇒ sin 3pi/4 = sin 11pi/4 = sin 19pi/4 , and so on.
Note: Since, sine is an odd function, the value of sin(-3pi/4) = -sin(3pi/4).

Methods to Find Value of Sin 3pi/4

Sin 3pi/4 Using Unit Circle

value of sin 3pi/4

To find the value of sin 3π/4 using the unit circle:

  • Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form 3pi/4 angle with the positive x-axis.
  • The sin of 3pi/4 equals the y-coordinate(0.7071) of the point of intersection (-0.7071, 0.7071) of unit circle and r.

Hence the value of sin 3pi/4 = y = 0.7071 (approx)
