Tan Function

Determines the tangent of an angle. The angle is specified in radians.

Using the angle Alpha, the Tan Function calculates the ratio of the length of the side opposite the angle to the length of the side adjacent to the angle in a right-angled triangle.

Tan(Alpha) = side opposite the angle/side adjacent to angle
