Definitions and meaning of sine

sine

Etymology

Borrowed from Latin sinus (curve, bend; bosom), a translation of Arabic جَيْب(jayb, bosom), a misidentification of the notation جب (jb), written without vowel diacritics, standing for Arabic جِيبَ(jība, sine), in turn from Sanskrit ज्या (jyā, sine, chord, bowstring) through the similar Sanskrit जीव (jīva, sine, chord, life, existence). Doublet of sinus.

Noun

sine (plural sines)

  1. (trigonometry, mathematics) In a right triangle, the ratio of the length of the side opposite an angle to the length of the hypotenuse.

Usage notes

In various branches of mathematics, the sine of an angle is determined in various ways, including the following:

  • The y-coordinate of the point on the unit circle at the given anticlockwise angle from the positive x-axis.
  • The sum of the real or complex power series

          n = 1 ( 1 ) n 1 ( 2 n 1 ) ! x 2 n 1 = x 1 6 x 3 + 1 120 x 5 1 5040 x 7 + . . . {\displaystyle \sum _{n=1}^{\infty }{{(-1)^{n-1}} \over {(2n-1)!}}x^{2n-1}=x-{1 \over 6}x^{3}+{1 \over 120}x^{5}-{1 \over 5040}x^{7}+...}

    where x is in radians.

Pronunciation

  • (Classical) IPA(key): /ˈsi.ne/, [ˈs̠ɪnɛ]
  • (Ecclesiastical) IPA(key): /ˈsi.ne/, [ˈsiːnɛ]

Etymology 1

The function of this preposition was previously done with the use of sē, sēd (see sē-, sed), from Proto-Indo-European *swé (self), thus meaning "by itself", "without". Some still refer the si- in sine to this root, others refer it to Proto-Indo-European *só (this), whence si (if). And as sometimes nesi was also written, with -ne being (not), sine might literally mean "not this". Compare with nisi.

Others yet refer sine to Proto-Indo-European *seni (for oneself, without), itself maybe related to *swé or a locative of *senH-. Thus cognate with Ancient Greek ἄτερ (áter, without), Old English sundor.
