DEGREES

The DEGREES function converts radians to degrees. It is useful when working with trigonometry or geometry calculations.

Syntax

=DEGREES(angle)

angle The angle in radians that you want to convert to degrees.

About DEGREES

When you find yourself in the mathematical realm, needing to switch between radians and degrees, the DEGREES function in Excel comes to your aid. It proves to be a handy tool for transforming angles measured in radians into degrees, facilitating computations in trigonometry, geometry, or any field that deals with angular measurements.

Examples

If you have an angle of 1.5708 radians and you wish to convert it to degrees, you can use the DEGREES function as follows: =DEGREES(1.5708)

Suppose you are working on a trigonometry problem that provides an angle in radians as 2.3562. To convert this angle to degrees, you would apply the DEGREES function like this: =DEGREES(2.3562)

Questions

Why would I use the DEGREES function?

The DEGREES function is useful when you need to convert angles in radians to degrees. This conversion can be crucial when working on mathematical problems that involve trigonometry or geometry, or when specific calculations require angle measurements in degrees.

Can I reverse the conversion with the DEGREES function?

No, the DEGREES function is specifically designed to convert angles from radians to degrees. If you need to convert degrees to radians, you should use the RADIANS function in Excel.

Is the DEGREES function accurate in converting radians to degrees?

Yes, the DEGREES function accurately performs the conversion of angles from radians to degrees. It follows the standard formula for this conversion, ensuring the correctness of the degree measurement.
