2 | =SIN(C6) | 0.893996663600558 |

3 | =SIN(C7) | 0.580611184212314 |

## Syntax and Arguments:

The Syntax for the SIN Formula is:

1 |
=SIN(number) |

### Function Arguments ( Inputs ):

**number** – A number.

## Additional Notes

Use the SINE Function to calculate the sine of an angle. Simply enter the angle directly into the function or reference a cell containing the angle.

## SIN Examples in VBA

You can also use the SIN function in VBA. Type:

`application.worksheetfunction.sin(number)`

For the function arguments (number, etc.), you can either enter them directly into the function, or define variables to use instead.

## How to use the SIN Function in Excel:

To use the AND Excel Worksheet Function, type the following into a cell:

`=AND(`

After entering it in the cell, notice how the AND formula inputs appear below the cell:

You will need to enter these inputs into the function. The function inputs are covered in more detail in the next section. However, if you ever need more help with the function, after typing “=SIN(” into a cell, without leaving the cell, use the shortcut **CTRL + A** (**A** for **A**rguments) to open the “Insert Function Dialog Box” for detailed instructions:
