**NCERT Class 12 Maths Chapter 2 Inverse Trigonometric Functions Notes:- **Inverse Trigonometric Functions is one of the most important chapter for the students in the board exam as well as in competitive exams such as JEE Main. In this article, you will get the NCERT Class 12 Maths Chapter 2 Notes. These chapter notes are beneficial for students to revise the important concepts before the exams.

In the previous classes, you have already learnt about trigonometric functions and their applications in fields like geometry, navigation, science, and engineering. In this chapter, you will learn about Inverse Trigonometric functions. If you have a good command of trigonometric functions, it won't take much effort to understand this chapter. Class 12 Maths chapter 2 notes are designed in a detailed manner. First, you need to practice all the NCERT problems on your own. **Inverse Trigonometric Functions**** Class 12 notes** will give a short description of the topics covered in the NCERT Book.

The inverse of any functions exists if the function 'f' is one-one and onto. The inverse of function 'f' is denoted by f ^{-1}. The trigonometric functions are neither one-one and onto over their domain and natural ranges. So the domains and ranges of trigonometric functions are restricted to ensure the existence of their inverse. The inverse trigonometric functions, denoted by sin ^{-1 }x or (arc sin x), cos ^{-1}x etc. denote the angles whose sine, cosine etc, is equal to x.

Note- Do not confuse inverse function ( ) with . The inverse trigonometric functions like is not the same as .

**Domain & Range of Inverse Trigonometric Functions:-**

**Graphs Of Inverse Trigonometric Functions :-**

(i) Graphs of sin x and sin^{-1} x-

The domain of the inverse sine function is and the range is .

(ii) Graphs of cas x and cas^{-1} x

The domain of the inverse cosine function is and the range is .

(iii) Graphs of cosec x and cosec^{-1} x

The domain of the inverse cosec function is and the range is .

(iv) Graphs of sec x and sec^{-1} x

The domain of the inverse cosec function is and the range is .

(v) Graphs of tan x and tan^{-1} x

The domain of the inverse cosec function is and the range is .

(vi) Graphs of cot x and cot^{-1} x

The domain of the inverse cosec function is and the range is .

**Note:-**

- All the inverse trigonometric functions represent an angle
- If , then all six inverse trigonometric functions viz sin
^{-}^{1}x, cos^{-}^{1}x, tan^{-}^{1}x, sec^{-}^{1}x, cosec^{-}^{1}x, cot^{-}^{1}x represent an acute angle - If x < 0, then sin
^{-}^{1}x, tan^{-}^{1}x & cosec^{-}^{1}x represent an angle from to 0 - If x < 0, then cos
^{-}^{1}x, cot^{-}^{1 }x & sec^{-}^{1 }x represent an obtuse angle - IIIrd quadrant is never used in inverse trigonometric function

There are some important formulas in NCERT Class 12 Maths chapter 2 Inverse trigonometric functions which will be useful while solving NECRT problems. These formulas are conditional, that can be used for a certain range of values of x.
