Find the principal values of the following:

    7. \sec^{-1}\left (\frac{2}{\sqrt3}\right)

Answers (1)


Let us assume that \sec^{-1}\left (\frac{2}{\sqrt3}\right) = z  then,

we can also write it as; \sec z = \left (\frac{2}{\sqrt3}\right).

Or \sec (\frac{\pi}{6}) = \left (\frac{2}{\sqrt3}\right)  and the principal values lies between  \left [ 0, \pi \right ] - \left \{ \frac{\pi}{2} \right \}.

Hence we get only one principal value of \sec^{-1}\left (\frac{2}{\sqrt3}\right)  i.e., \frac{\pi}{6}.
