Scientific functoids are used to perform a variety of standard trigonometric, logarithmic, and exponential calculations.
With the exception of the Base-Specified Logarithm and X^Y functoids, which each take two input parameters, the Scientific functoids all take a single parameter.
The four trigonometric Scientific functoids (Arc Tangent, Cosine, Sine, and Tangent) all use radians rather than degrees as the units for their relevant input or output parameters. A radian is a unit of measure of angles, such that there are 2π radians in a circle. It follows that:
2π radians equals 360 degrees
1 radian = 180/π degrees
1 degree = π/180 radians
If your input or output instance messages use degrees as their unit of measure for angles, you will need to use a Mathematical functoid in conjunction with a trigonometric Scientific functoid to achieve the correct result.
