How To Use RADIANS()


Converts an angle value in degrees to radians.

Common questions about the RADIANS Formula:
1. What is the purpose of the RADIANS formula?
2. What elements make up the formula?
3. How do I use the RADIANS Formula in Google Sheets?

How can the RADIANS formula be used appropriately?
The RADIANS formula can be used to convert between degrees and radians, which is often useful for trigonometric functions and coordinate transformations. Other applications include calculating the arc length of a circle in terms of its radius and angle in radians.

How can the RADIANS formula be commonly mistyped?
RADIANS is commonly misspelled as RADIANCE. Additionally, many users forget to include the parentheses needed to denote the angle, which is always the first argument in the formula. Other common misspellings are RADAINS, RADINAS, RAIDIANDS, RAIDANS.

What are some common ways the RADIANS formula is used inappropriately?
Sometimes users try to insert a degree value instead of a radian value in the formula. Additionally, the RADIANS formula should not be used for trigonometric functions as the argument needs to be expressed in radians; the DEGREES formula should be used instead.

What are some common pitfalls when using the RADIANS formula?
When using the RADIANS formula with trigonometric functions, it is important to keep track of the unit you are using (degrees or radians). Users should also be aware of the order of operations when using the RADIANS formula.

What are common mistakes when using the RADIANS formula?
Common mistakes when using the RADIANS formula include forgetting to include the parentheses around the angle argument, mistyping the formula as RADIANCE, and mistakenly applying the formula to trigonometric functions with a degree argument.

What are common misconceptions people might have with the RADIANS Formula?
One common misconception is that the RADIANS formula can be used to convert between more than just degrees and radians. It can only convert between these two metrics. Additionally, the RADIANS formula is not the same as the DEGREES formula, which should be used when converting from radians to degrees.
