Hey everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have recently developed a strong interest in physics. To the point where I am changing my major from computer science to computational physics. Anyway, I am having a problem understanding a formula in a book I have on relativity. The problem is:

90[tex]\circ[/tex] = arcsec(300/1000). Now I know some Trig. but I haven't done it in awhile and don't remember arcsec at all. Can anyone explain to me why that problem equals 90 degrees.

Thanks,

Daniel
