Welcome to **tan 300°**, our post aboutthe tangent of 300 degrees.

For the tangent of 300 degrees we use the abbreviation *tan* for the trigonometric function together with the degree symbol °, and write it as tan 300°.

If you have been looking for *what is tan 300°*, or if you have been wondering about tan 300 degrees in radians, then you are right here, too.

In this post you can find the tan 300° value, along with identities.

Read on to learn all about the tan of 300°.

## Tan 300 Degrees

If you want to know *what is tan 300 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 300°:

tan 300° = -√3

tan 300 degrees = -√3

The tan of 300 degrees is -√3, the same as tan of 300 degrees in radians. To obtain 300 degrees in radian multiply 300° by $\pi$ / 180° = 5/3 $\pi$. Tan 300degrees = tan (5/3 × $\pi)$.

Our results of tan300° have been rounded to five decimal places. If you want tangent 300° with higher accuracy, then use the calculator below; our tool displays ten decimal places.

To calculate tan 300 degrees insert the angle 300 in the field labelled °, but if you want to calculate tan 300 in radians, then you have to press the swap unit button first.

The identities of tangent 300° are as follows:

= cot (90°-300°) = cot -210°

-tan300°

= tan (-300°) = -tan 300°

= cot (90°+300°) = cot 390°

= tan (180°-300°) = tan -120°

Note that tan300° is periodic: tan (300° + *n* × 180°) = tan 300 degrees, n$\hspace{5px} \in \hspace{5px} \mathbb{Z}$.

There are more formulas for the double angle (2 × 300°), half angle ((300/2)°) as well as the sum, difference and products of two angles such as 300° and β.

In terms of the other five trigonometric functions, tan of 300° =

- $\pm\frac{\sin 300^\circ}{\sqrt{1 – \sin^{2} 300^\circ}}$
- $\pm\frac{\sqrt{1 – \cos^{2} 300^\circ}}{\cos 300^\circ}$
- $\pm \sqrt{\sec^{2} 300^\circ -1}$
- $\pm\frac{1}{\sqrt{\csc^2 300^\circ – 1}}$
- $\frac{1}{\cot 300^\circ}$

As the cotangent function is the reciprocal of the tangent function, 1 / cot 300° = tan300°.

## What is tan 300°?

In a circle with the radius r, the horizontal axis x, and the vertical axis y, 300 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 300°, x = cos 300° and tan 300° = sin 300°/cos 300°.

Note that you can locate many terms including the tangent300° value using the search form. On mobile devices you can find it by scrolling down. Enter, for instance, value of tan300°.

Along the same lines, using the aforementioned form, can you look up terms such as tan 300° value, tan 300, tan300° value and *what is the tan of 300 degrees*, just to name a few.

Given the periodicity of tangent of 300°, to determine the tangent of an angle > 180°, e.g. 1020°, calculate tan 1020° as tan (1020 Mod 180)° = tangent of 300°, or look it up with our form.
