Welcome to **tan 53°**, our post aboutthe tangent of 53 degrees.

For the tangent of 53 degrees we use the abbreviation *tan* for the trigonometric function together with the degree symbol °, and write it as tan 53°.

If you have been looking for *what is tan 53°*, or if you have been wondering about tan 53 degrees in radians, then you are right here, too.

In this post you can find the tan 53° value, along with identities.

Read on to learn all about the tan of 53°.

## Tan 53 Degrees

If you want to know *what is tan 53 degrees* in terms of trigonometry, then navigate straight to the explanations in the next paragraph; what’s ahead in this section is the value of tan 53°:

tan 53° = 1.32704

tan 53 degrees = 1.32704

The tan of 53 degrees is 1.32704, the same as tan of 53 degrees in radians. To obtain 53 degrees in radian multiply 53° by $\pi$ / 180° = 53/180 $\pi$. Tan 53degrees = tan (53/180 × $\pi)$.

Our results of tan53° have been rounded to five decimal places. If you want tangent 53° with higher accuracy, then use the calculator below; our tool displays ten decimal places.

To calculate tan 53 degrees insert the angle 53 in the field labelled °, but if you want to calculate tan 53 in radians, then you have to press the swap unit button first.

### Calculate tan [degrees]

The identities of tangent 53° are as follows:

= cot (90°-53°) = cot 37°

-tan53°

= tan (-53°) = -tan 53°

= cot (90°+53°) = cot 143°

= tan (180°-53°) = tan 127°

*n*× 180°) = tan 53 degrees, n$\hspace{5px} \in \hspace{5px} \mathbb{Z}$.

There are more formulas for the double angle (2 × 53°), half angle ((53/2)°) as well as the sum, difference and products of two angles such as 53° and β.

You can locate all of them in the respective article found in the header menu. To find everything about tan -53° click the link. And here is all about cot 53°, including, for instance, a converter.

In terms of the other five trigonometric functions, tan of 53° =

- $\pm\frac{\sin 53^\circ}{\sqrt{1 – \sin^{2} 53^\circ}}$
- $\pm\frac{\sqrt{1 – \cos^{2} 53^\circ}}{\cos 53^\circ}$
- $\pm \sqrt{\sec^{2} 53^\circ -1}$
- $\pm\frac{1}{\sqrt{\csc^2 53^\circ – 1}}$
- $\frac{1}{\cot 53^\circ}$

As the cotangent function is the reciprocal of the tangent function, 1 / cot 53° = tan53°.

In the next part of this article we discuss the trigonometric significance of tan53°, and there you can also learn what the search calculations form in the sidebar is used for.

## What is tan 53°?

In a triangle which has one angle of 90 degrees, the tangent of the angle of 53° is the ratio of the length of the opposite side *o* to the length of the adjacent side *a*: tan 53° = o/a.

In a circle with the radius r, the horizontal axis x, and the vertical axis y, 53 degrees is the angle formed by the two sides x and r; r moving counterclockwise is the positive angle.

Applying the unit-circle definition found on our homepage, assumed r = 1, in the intersection of the point (x,y) and the circle, y = sin 53°, x = cos 53° and tan 53° = sin 53°/cos 53°.

Bringing together the triangle definition and the unit circle definition of tangent 53 degrees, a = x, o = y and h = r = 1. It follows that $y/x\hspace{5px} =\hspace{5px}\frac{opposite}{adjacent}\hspace{5px}=\hspace{5px}\tan 53^\circ$.

Note that you can locate many terms including the tangent53° value using the search form. On mobile devices you can find it by scrolling down. Enter, for instance, value of tan53°.

Along the same lines, using the aforementioned form, can you look up terms such as tan 53° value, tan 53, tan53° value and *what is the tan of 53 degrees*, just to name a few.

Given the periodicity of tangent of 53°, to determine the tangent of an angle > 180°, e.g. 773°, calculate tan 773° as tan (773 Mod 180)° = tangent of 53°, or look it up with our form.
