An abbreviation which stands for the trigonometric function, "cosine." In its native mathematical context, cosine is used in solving for side lengths or angle measurements in right-triangles, exclusively.

In regards to its place within the acronym: SOHCAHTOA, cosine occupies the "CAH," wherein the series forms: Cosine (equals) Adjacent (over) Hypotenuse.

When dealing with an angle measurement, x ("theta"), the side "touching" the angle is referred to as the Adjacent side; the side furthest away from the angle is referred to as the Opposite side; and, in a right triangle, the hypotenuse always remains and, simplistically, may be recognized as the diagonal side.

Note: UrbanDictionary entries do not support Entity, Hex or Decimal browser rendering. This definition of "cos" uses an "x" in place of the Greek small letter, "theta".

However, in reality, theta appears as an "o" or a "zero" with a line going horizontally through the center.

Acronym for "Church of Scientology." Can also be written CO$ since the "religion"'s main goal is to make money.

"The Church of Scientology is a vicious and dangerous cult that masquerades as a religion...It practices a variety of mind-control techniques on people lured into its midst to gain control over their money and their lives. Its aim is to take from them every penny that they have and can ever borrow and to also enslave them to further its wicked ends." -Operation Clambake
