This calculator builds a parametric sinusoid in the range from 0 to $2\pi$
Why parametric? Because the graph is represented by the following formula

$y(x)=sin(kx+a)$, and the coefficients k and a can be set by the user.

Some words about the form in which the user can set the coefficients – there are three possible forms:

The number put in the box is interpreted as radians, for example, 2 radians

2. Degrees
The number put in the box is interpreted as degrees, for example, 60 degrees

The number put in the box is interpreted as a factor in front of the number $\pi$, for example, 2$\pi$ radian

By default, k = 1, a = 0, which gives us a classic graph $y(x)=sin(x)$

P.S. It is clear that when k is very large, the graph looks shitty, but what can you do – its a linear approximation after all!
