Excel DEGREES Function allows you to convert an angle in radians into degrees, making it easier to work with angles in everyday units like degrees.
|angle||The angle in radians that you want to convert to degrees. This is a required argument.|
How to Use
To use the DEGREES function, follow these simple steps:
- Start with an Excel worksheet and select the cell where you want the result to appear.
- Enter the formula, like this:
=DEGREES(angle)Where “angle” is the cell reference or value in radians that you want to convert to degrees.
- Press Enter, and the cell will display the angle in degrees.
Here are some examples to help you understand how to use the DEGREES function:
Example 1: Convert 1.047 radians to degrees.
This formula will return 60 degrees, as 1.047 radians is equivalent to 60 degrees.
Example 2: Convert the radian value in cell A1 to degrees.
If cell A1 contains the value 2.094 (radians), this formula will return 120 degrees.
The DEGREES function is useful when you need to work with angles in degrees rather than radians. Radians are often used in mathematical calculations, while degrees are more commonly used in everyday life. This function simplifies the conversion between these two units, making your work with angles more convenient.
