numpy.tan(x, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'tan'>
Compute tangent elementwise.
Equivalent to np.sin(x)/np.cos(x)
elementwise.
Parameters: 


Returns: 

If out
is provided, the function writes the result into it, and returns a reference to out
. (See Examples)
