According to the basic Google cheat sheet, there are a just a few operators available to users. Yet Google accepts a much larger group of operators, let’s find out what they are. But before we do that, try the following link: (1 + sqrt(5))/2
Roots, squares and cubes
By typing sqrt() with a positive integer, Google will calculate the value of the square root. Since Google offers the power operator, one could simply use 2^0.5 instead. Writing a cube root with such notation would be quite impractical.
Google’s mathematical abilities are quite impressive, in fact you can use common constants like e, pi and i in all calculations.
All trigonometric operators are available as well but arguments are assumed to be in radians : sin, cos, tan, sec, csc, cot, arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccsc, sinh, cosh, tanh, csch, arsinh, arccsch
Google also does currency and unit conversions of mass, length, volume, area, time, electricity, power, energy and various numbering systems
Google also understands a number of physics constants from the speed of light to the Stefan-Boltzmann constant.
