Sine is a basic trigonometric function. While working with tensors in PyTorch, users may want to calculate the sine of each element in the specific tensor. PyTorch provides a “torch.sin()” method to perform this operation. This method accepts a specific input tensor and returns a tensor with the calculated sine values of tensor elements.

This blog will illustrate the method to compute the sine of specific tensor elements in PyTorch.

**How to Find/Calculate Sine of Specific Tensor Elements in PyTorch?**

To calculate/compute tensor elements’s sine in PyTorch, follow the below-provided steps:

- Import PyTorch library
- Define the desired tensor
- Calculate the sine of tensor elements using the “torch.sin()” method
- Print the calculated sine values of the tensor elements

Go through the following examples for a practical demonstration:

**Example 1: Calculate the Sine of 1D Tensor Elements**

In the first section, create a 1D tensor and compute the sine of its elements.

**Step 1: Install PyTorch Library**

First, install the “**torch**” library to calculate/find the sine of tensor elements:

`import torch`

**Step 2: Define a 1D Tensor **

Then, define a 1D tensor and print its elements. For example, we are making a “**T1**” tensor from a list using the “**torch.Tensor()**” function:

```
T1 = torch.Tensor([2.9, 6.3, 4.1, 9.7, 7.8])
print(T1)
```

This has created a 1D tensor:

**Step 3: Calculate the Sine of Tensor Elements **

Now, utilize the “**torch.sin()**” method and pass the above-created input tensor as a parameter to calculate the sine of its elements:

`Tens_sine = torch.sin(T1)`

**Step 4: Print Calculated Sine of Tensor Elements **

Finally, display the calculated sine values of the tensor elements:

`print(Tens_sine)`

The below output shows the computed sine values of the “**T1**” tensor elements:

**Example 2: Calculate the Sine of 2D Tensor Elements**

In the second section, define a 2D tensor and compute the sine of its elements.

**Step 1: Install PyTorch Library**

First, install the “**torch**” library:

`import torch`

**Step 2: Define a 2D Tensor **

Then, define the 2D tensor and print its elements. Here, we are defining a “**T2**” tensor through the “**torch.Tensor()**” function:

```
T2 = torch.Tensor([[2.3, 5.3, 4.4, 9.1],
[0.2, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7],
[1.1, 0.3, 8.4, 4.9]])
print(T2)
```

This has created the 2D tensor as seen below:

**Step 3: Calculate the Sine of Tensor Elements **

Now, compute the sine of the above-created tensor elements using the “**torch.sin()**” method and passing the input tensor as a parameter:

`Tens_sine = torch.sin(T2)`

**Step 4: Print Calculated Sine of Tensor Elements **

Lastly, display the calculated sine values of the 2D tensor elements:

`print(Tens_sine)`

In the below output, the computed sine values of the “**T2**” tensor can be seen:
