“Trigonometry calculator solves for all 6 trigonometric functions and for all 6 trigonometric arcfunctions, the double line display works with degrees and radians simultaneously, sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, cosecant, arcsine, arccosine, arctangent, arccotangent, arcsecant, arccosecan … “

Here is the earth around sun and earth spin situation:

Earth rotates around sun in a tilt of 23.5 degrees and rotates around itself with spin S. SO S is 84% along sun’s vertical and 16% along sun’s horizontal;

proof:

cos^2 (23.5 deg) + cos^2 (90-23.5 deg) = 1.

So S_z = S.cos(23.5deg) ,

S_xy = S.sin(23.5deg),

z: cos^2(23.5deg) = ( 0.91706 )^2 = 84.09%,

xy: sin^2(23.5deg) = ( 0.39875 )^2 = 15.9 %
