The RADIANS function converts angles from degrees to radians in Excel. It is commonly used in trigonometry and geometry calculations where trigonometric functions require angle inputs in radians.

## Syntax ðŸ”—

=RADIANS(`angle`)

## Examples ðŸ”—

If you have an angle of 45 degrees that you need to convert to radians, you can use the RADIANS function as follows: =RADIANS(45)

Suppose you are working on a trigonometry problem that involves an angle of 30 degrees. To convert this angle to radians using the RADIANS function, you can utilize the formula: =RADIANS(30)

## Notes ðŸ”—

Ensure that the angle provided to the RADIANS function is in degrees, as the function specifically converts degrees to radians. The resultant output will be in radians, which is the standard unit for angular measurement in many mathematical calculations.

## Questions ðŸ”—

Why is it important to convert angles to radians for trigonometric functions?

Trigonometric functions in mathematical calculations often require angle inputs in radians. By converting angles from degrees to radians using the RADIANS function, you ensure compatibility with trigonometric formulas and operations, thereby obtaining accurate results.
