## Summary:

- I believe it may be impossible but has anyone seen or come across an exact expression of the sin of 1 degree in a closed form that does not involve either complex roots, infinite series, or sines and cosines of other angles. Thanks.

For example, $$Sin(15)= \frac {(\sqrt 6 - \sqrt 2)} 4$$

and $$Sin(3)=\frac {(\sqrt 6 (\sqrt 5 -1)(3+\sqrt 3)} {48} -\frac {\sqrt 3 (3-\sqrt 3 )\sqrt{ 5+\sqrt 5 }} {24}$$

What about ##Sin(1)##?

and $$Sin(3)=\frac {(\sqrt 6 (\sqrt 5 -1)(3+\sqrt 3)} {48} -\frac {\sqrt 3 (3-\sqrt 3 )\sqrt{ 5+\sqrt 5 }} {24}$$

What about ##Sin(1)##?
