## Description
Calculates the angle (in radians) from a specified point to the coordinate origin as measured from the positive x-axis. Values are returned as a float in the range from `PI` to `-PI`. The `atan2()` function is most often used for orienting geometry to the position of the cursor. Note: The y-coordinate of the point is the first parameter, and the x-coordinate is the second parameter, due the the structure of calculating the tangent.
This function makes a call to the numpy `atan2()` function.
## Signatures
```python
atan2(
y: Union[float, npt.ArrayLike], # y-coordinate of the point
x: Union[float, npt.ArrayLike], # x-coordinate of the point
) -> Union[float, npt.NDArray]
```
