C++ Program to Compute the Sine and Cosine Series

The program for sine and cosine is based on power series especially Taylor series. A power series is a form of representation of some functions that converge into a single value.

In simple words, some functions are in the form of an infinite series (A power series is also a form of infinite series) can give a finite value.

This program computes that finite value for a sine and cosine series and prints the result. To understand the mathematical part of the program, you must learn – sequences and series, calculus, infinite series, power series (Taylor series, Maclaurin series).

If you are not familiar with the above concepts continue reading the following sections – problem definition, flowchart, program source code and verifies the output. This program is intended for intermediate level learners of C programming language.

Problem Definition

The formula for computing the sine and cosine series for a given degree, X is

Sine Series
Sine Series
Cosine Series
Cosine Series

First, you change the value of x to radian and then using the result compute the sine and cosine series. To understand the concept, let’s take an example.

Suppose x = 45 degree

We want to compute sine (45), then convert 45 degrees into radian measure.

radian = 45 * π/180

= π/4

= 3.14/4

= 0.785398

Now, it is easy to compute the value of sin (π/4). Use the radian value in the series given above figure and get the following results.

sin (x) = 0.785398 – (0.785398)3/3! + (0.785398)5/5! …

sin (x) = 0.7072 (computed using calculator)

Note: The same principle applies to cosine series.

How do we process the input values ?

The process of computing sine and cosine series is described in 4 steps.

  1. Convert the degree to radian value for sine and cosine series computation.
  2. Compute the value of sin (x), where x is a value in radians.
  3. Compute the value of cos (x), where x is a value in radians.
  4. Print the result of the computation.
