Hello,
I'am sure it is described somewhere but neither in the handbook nor in the forum I found what I am looking for:

I have a table with some data in it and I created a new column into which I want the results of a calculation. Into the formula row of the table I enter my formula which is part of the Haversine
formula:
a = sin²(Δφ/2) + cos φ1 ⋅ cos φ2 ⋅ sin²(Δλ/2)
sin² and sin^2 is not accepted as formula part in Origin. How do I tell it that it should use sin squared for the calculation?

My Origin version is 2019b.
thanks of any hint where to read how it works!
