Advertisements


Description

The method degrees() converts angle x from radians to degrees..

Syntax

Following is the syntax for degrees() method:

degrees(x)

Note: This function is not accessible directly, so we need to import math module and then we need to call this function using math static object.

Parameters

  • x -- This must be a numeric value.

Return Value

This method returns degree value of an angle.

Example

The following example shows the usage of degrees() method.

#!/usr/bin/python
import math

print "degrees(3) : ",  math.degrees(3)
print "degrees(-3) : ",  math.degrees(-3)
print "degrees(0) : ",  math.degrees(0)
print "degrees(math.pi) : ",  math.degrees(math.pi)
print "degrees(math.pi/2) : ",  math.degrees(math.pi/2)
print "degrees(math.pi/4) : ",  math.degrees(math.pi/4)

When we run above program, it produces following result:

degrees(3) :  171.887338539
degrees(-3) :  -171.887338539
degrees(0) :  0.0
degrees(math.pi) :  180.0
degrees(math.pi/2) :  90.0
degrees(math.pi/4) :  45.0
