tan
(inplace=False, i=False)[source]¶ The trigonometric tangent of the data, elementwise.
Units are accounted for in the calculation, so that the the tangent of 180 degrees_east is 0.0, as is the sine of 3.141592653589793 radians. If the units are not equivalent to radians (such as Kelvin) then they are treated as if they were radians.
The Units are changed to ‘1’ (nondimensionsal).
The “standard_name” and “long_name” properties are removed from the result.
Parameters: Returns: The construct with the tangent of data values. If the operation was inplace then
None
is returned.Examples:
>>> f.Units <Units: degrees_north> >>> print(f.array) [[45 0 45 ]] >>> f.tan() >>> f.Units <Units: 1> >>> print(f.array) [[1.0 0.0 1.0 ]]
>>> f.Units <Units: m s1> >>> print(f.array) [[1 2 3 ]] >>> f.tan() >>> f.Units <Units: 1> >>> print(f.array) [[1.55740772465 2.18503986326 0.142546543074 ]]
