Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm working on a program, and it seems that I can't get the trigonometry in my head right. I have two equations, sin(omega) = something and cos(omega) = something, and I need to find what omega is.

Given that there are two trig functions, I should be able to disambiguate what quadrant omega is in.

On the other hand, I don't quite understand the process of how this would be done.

Any help or input would be greatly appreciated!
