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.

Numeric literal example:

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:

derive type:single value: RADIANS(myDegrees) as: myRads'

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

derive type:single value: RADIANS(numeric_value)
