- VBA function (VBA)
SIN Examples (as Worksheet Function)
Let's look at some Excel SIN function examples and explore how you would use the SIN function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel:
Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following SIN function examples would return:
|=SIN(A1)||would return 0.141120008|
|=SIN(A2)||would return -0.883454656|
|=SIN(A3)||would return 0.883454656|
|=SIN(2)||would return 0.909297427|
SIN Examples (as VBA Function)
The SIN function can also be used in VBA code in Microsoft Excel.
Let's look at some Excel SIN function examples and explore how you would use the SIN function in Excel VBA code:
Dim LNumber As Double LNumber = Sin(2)
In this example, the variable called LNumber would now contain the value of 0.909297427.
