Greetings,

How can I use:

[tex] \frac {d sin^-1(x)}{dx} = \frac {1}{\sqrt{(1-x^2)}} [/tex]

to calculate values for arc sine?

For example:

[tex] arcsin(x) = \int\frac {1}{\sqrt{(1-x^2)}} dx[/tex]

How can I use equation such that I enter “0.5” in for x and turn-the-crank and this equation spits out “30 degrees” or “0.524 radians”

Just curious.

Thanks

Sparky_
