convert/radians

convert degrees to radians

 Calling Sequence convert(number, radians)

Parameters

 number - expression in degrees

Description

 • The convert/radians function converts an expression from degrees to radians by multiplying it by Pi/180.
 • The expression must be of degree 1 in the indeterminate degrees.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{convert}\left(90\mathrm{degrees},\mathrm{radians}\right)$
 $\frac{{\mathrm{\pi }}}{{2}}$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{convert}\left(15\mathrm{degrees},\mathrm{radians}\right)$
 $\frac{{\mathrm{\pi }}}{{12}}$ (2)
 > $\mathrm{convert}\left(34\mathrm{degrees},\mathrm{radians}\right)$
 $\frac{{17}{}{\mathrm{\pi }}}{{90}}$ (3)

To get an approximate angle, use evalf.

 > $\mathrm{evalf}\left(\mathrm{convert}\left(34\mathrm{degrees},\mathrm{radians}\right)\right)$
 ${0.5934119458}$ (4)
