# ACOT

The ACOT function returns the arccotangent, or the inverse cotangent, of a number. It is useful for calculating angles or determining the phase shift in trigonometric and wave analysis.

## Syntax

=ACOT(`number`)

When you need to ascertain the arccotangent, or the inverse cotangent, of a given number for trigonometric or wave analysis, the ACOT function in Excel is your go-to tool. It provides a straightforward means of obtaining the angle associated with a particular cotangent value, offering valuable insights for various analytical and mathematical scenarios. Whether analyzing waveforms or solving geometric problems, the ACOT function presents a convenient and efficient solution for determining phase shifts or angle calculations based on cotangent values.

## Examples

To calculate the arccotangent of 2, you can use the formula: =ACOT(2)

To determine the phase shift in a wave analysis based on a specific cotangent value, you can employ the ACOT function to obtain the corresponding angle for accurate assessment and interpretation.
