## What is the Formula to convert Degrees to Radians?

The formula to convert given angle from Degrees to Radians is:

Angle_{(Radians)} = Angle_{(Degrees)} × π / 180

Substitute the given value of angle in degrees, i.e., Angle_{(Degrees)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the angle in radians, i.e., Angle_{(Radians)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a solar panel is tilted at an angle of 45 degrees for optimal sunlight exposure.

Convert this angle from degrees to Radians.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle of solar panel in degrees is:

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 45

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from degrees to radians is:

Angle_{(Radians)} = Angle_{(Degrees)} × π / 180

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight of solar panel, **Angle _{(Degrees)} = 45** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Radians)} = 45 × 3.14159265359 / 180

Angle_{(Radians)} = 0.7854

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **45 °** is equal to **0.7854 rad**.

The angle of solar panel is **0.7854 rad**, in radians.

### Consider that a camera tripod allows for a 30-degree adjustment to capture the perfect shot.

Convert this angle from degrees to Radians.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle of camera tripod in degrees is:

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 30

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from degrees to radians is:

Angle_{(Radians)} = Angle_{(Degrees)} × π / 180

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight of camera tripod, **Angle _{(Degrees)} = 30** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Radians)} = 30 × 3.14159265359 / 180

Angle_{(Radians)} = 0.5236

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 °** is equal to **0.5236 rad**.

The angle of camera tripod is **0.5236 rad**, in radians.

## Degrees

Degrees are a widely used unit of angular measurement, especially in geometry, trigonometry, and everyday applications. A full circle is divided into 360 degrees, with each degree further divided into 60 minutes and each minute into 60 seconds. Degrees offer an intuitive way to express angles, and they are prevalent in fields ranging from navigation to astronomy, as well as in common day-to-day measurements.

## Radians

Radians are a fundamental unit of angular measurement in the International System of Units (SI). One radian is the angle subtended at the center of a circle by an arc whose length is equal to the radius of the circle. Radians are essential in mathematics and physics, particularly in calculus and trigonometry, where they simplify equations and allow for the natural expression of rotational and periodic phenomena.
