numAngle
The angle in radians.
Tip: 2π radians is the same as 360 degrees.

Returned value

This function returns the tangent of the specified angle.

The function cannot return the actual tangent of π/2 (i.e., Tan(Pi()/2) or equivalent), because that is infinite. Instead, the function returns the largest number possible, given the limited precision of the value returned by the function Pi.

Examples

Calculate the tangent of 1 radian:
  Tan(1)  
Calculate the tangent of π radians:
  Tan(Pi())  
Calculate the tangent of the value of the project tag MyAngle:
  Tan(MyAngle)
