# cf.Data.tan¶

Data.tan(inplace=False, i=False)[source]

Take the trigonometric tangent of the data array element-wise.

Units are accounted for in the calculation. If the units are not equivalent to radians (such as Kelvin) then they are treated as if they were radians. For example, the the tangent of 45 degrees_east is 1.0, as is the tangent of 0.78539816 radians.

The output units are changed to '1' (nondimensionsal).

Parmaeters: inplace: bool, optional If True then do the operation in-place and return None. i: deprecated at version 3.0.0 Use inplace parameter instead. Data

Examples:

>>> d.Units
<Units: degrees_north>
>>> print(d.array)
[[-45 0 45 --]]
>>> d.tan()
>>> d.Units
<Units: 1>
>>> print(d.array)
[[-1.0 0.0 1.0 --]]

>>> d.Units
<Units: m s-1>
>>> print(d.array)
[[1 2 3 --]]
>>> d.tan()
>>> d.Units
<Units: 1>
>>> print(d.array)
[[1.55740772465 -2.18503986326 -0.142546543074 --]]
