Examples

Drops of blood splash differently depending on the angle at which they strike a hard surface, and arcsine equations can be used to reconstruct the path that the blood took through the air.

The heat map is arranged according to sample and lipid clustering analysis and mol% values were arcsinetransformed.

For multivariate PCA, all lipids (mol%) were transformed using the square root of the arcsine to approximate normality Principal Component Analysis (PCA) of lipid markers recovered from the four sample types.

In order to approximate normality, mol% concentrations were transformed using the square root of the arcsine Heat map and dendrograms of lipid distribution.

As both orgNSAF and wcNSAF values essentially represent percentages, all data were arcsine transformed

Ratios and percentages were arcsine transformed prior to statistical analysis.

Proportion of germinated seeds was arcsine transformed to achieve normality, but we were not able to transform timing of antherstigma contact successfully; however, as the distribution was not skewed, this should pose no serious problem

These are known as the hyperbolic arcsine, hyperbolic arccosine, hyperbolic arctangent, hyper  bolic arccosecant, hyperbolic arcsecant, and hyperbolic arccotangent.

The range of the arcsine function is limited to values of y between, and including, 90 and 90 (/2 rad and/2 rad).

If we are operating on some variable x, the arcsine of x is denoted sinÀ1 (x) or arcsin (x) 48 CHAPTER 3 Graphs and Inverses Fig. 310.
