Rational sine (
Posted on 20050502

Is there a nonzero rational number q such that sin(q) is rational (radian measure)?
How about a transcendental number with transcendental sine?

There is no such rational number.
If x is any nonzero algebraic number then it follows from the "general Lindemann theorem" that sin (x) is transcendental. This is very deep stuff.
