This tool is designed to make it easy for you in converting from radians to degrees and vice versa. Here is a quick guide on how to use it:
1. Enter the value into the box. E.g. 10
2. Select radian option in the left box, and degree in the right side.
3. Click on the convert button.
Then, you will see the result just below it: 10 radians = 572.957795 degrees
You can convert from radian to degree by multiplying number of radian with 57.29578 (1 rad = 57.29578 °).
Example: 10 rad = ? °
Solution: 10 x 57.29578 = 572.957795 °
Here is a pre calculation from radian to degree table:
Radian is a unit of angle measurement. It is widely used in mathematics and science. It is equal to 1/(2 pi) of the circle, or 57.295779°. This unit was named after James Thomson, a mathematics professor at Queen's College, Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 1873.
Degree [°] is a standard unit of angle measurement. It is equal to 1/360 circle, or 60 minutes, or 3600 seconds, or about 0.017 453 293 radian. This unit was introduced by the Greek geometer Hipparchus of Nicaea (ca. 180-ca. 125 BC), who developed the first trigonometric tables.
