Compute the inverse sine of x, where the output is in radians


In the Julia programming language, the asin function is used to compute the inverse sine of a given value x, where the output is in radians. Here are some examples of how to use the asin function:

  1. Compute the inverse sine of a number:

    julia> asin(0.5)

    This example calculates the inverse sine of 0.5, which is approximately 0.5235987755982989 radians.

  2. Handle negative input:

    julia> asin(-0.8)

    It computes the inverse sine of -0.8, which results in -0.9272952180016122 radians.

  3. Use variables as input:
    julia> x = 0.707;
    julia> asin(x)

    Here, the variable x is used as the input to compute the inverse sine.

Common mistake example:

julia> asin(2)
ERROR: DomainError with -2.0:
asin will only return values in the range [-π/2, π/2]

In this example, the input value 2 is outside the valid range ([-1, 1]) for the asin function. It's important to ensure that the input value falls within the appropriate domain to avoid such errors.
