Using the angle Alpha, the Sin function returns the ratio of the length of the opposite side of an angle to the length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle.

Sin(Alpha) = side opposite the angle/hypotenuse

To convert degrees to radians, multiply degrees by Pi/180, and to convert radians to degrees, multiply radians by 180/Pi.

Pi is approximately 3.141593.
