Updated On : August 11, 2023


Inverse trigonometric functions are known as the inverse functions of basic trigonometric functions that are sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, cosecant, and secant functions. These functions are majorly used in the field of engineering, physics, geometry and navigation.

In most of the entrance examinations after 12t standard, the Inverse Trigonometric functions topic is included in the Mathematics section. 

What are Inverse Trigonometric Functions?

The inverse trigonometric functions perform the opposite function of trigonometric functions that are sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, cosecant, and secant. They are also known as "Arc Functions" as for a given value of trigonometric functions they provide the length of the arc needed to obtain that particular value. 

If you are worried about what type of Inverse Trigonometric Function Questions are asked in DU JAT, then this post shall take you through most commonly asked Inverse Trigonometric Function Questions along with solutions.

Basic Inverse Trigonometric Function Formulas

Inverse Trig Functions Formulas
Arcsine sin-1(-x) = -sin-1(x), x ∈ [-1, 1]
Arccosine cos-1(-x) = π -cos-1(x), x ∈ [-1, 1]
Arctangent tan-1(-x) = -tan-1(x), x ∈ R
Arccotangent cot-1(-x) = π – cot-1(x), x ∈ R
Arcsecant sec-1(-x) = π -sec-1(x), |x| ≥ 1
Arccosecant cosec-1(-x) = -cosec-1(x), |x| ≥ 1
