D toc
Excerpt

Computes the radians of an input value measuring degrees of an angle. The value can be a Decimal or Integer literal or a reference to a column containing numeric values.

• A unit of 1 radian identifies the angle of a circle where the radius of the circle equals the length of the arc on the circle for that angle. This value corresponds to approximately 57.3 degrees.
• Input units are in degrees.
• You can convert from radians to degrees. For more information, see DEGREES Function.

snippet Basic

Numeric literal example:

D code

derive type:single value: ROUND(RADIANS(57.2728),4)

Output: Generates a column containing the computation in radians of `57.2728` rounded to four digits, which is `1.0000`

Column reference example:

D code

Output: Generates the new `myRads` column containing the conversion of the values in `MyDegrees` column to radians.
