ARCTANGENT2 |
THE BOX'S MAIN HELP:
This function returns a scalar between [-PI,PI]. The sign of the inputs determines which quadrant the result will be. Arctangent is the inverse of the tangent function. atan2(b,a) = y/x if and only if tan(y/x) = b/a. A (input):
This may be any real number. The sign of the inputs determines which quadrant the result will be. B (input):
This may be any real number. This is the longitudinal angle. The sign of the inputs determines which quadrant the result will be. OUT (output):
This function returns a float between [-PI,PI]. The sign of the inputs determines which quadrant the result will be. Arctangent is the inverse of the tangent function. atan2(b,a) = y/x if and only if tan(y/x) = b/a. |
