Python Number radians() Method

Advertisements


Description

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

Syntax

Following is the syntax for radians() method:

radians(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 radian value of an angle.

Example

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

#!/usr/bin/python
import math

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

When we run above program, it produces following result:

radians(3) :  0.0523598775598
radians(-3) :  -0.0523598775598
radians(0) :  0.0
radians(math.pi) :  0.0548311355616
radians(math.pi/2) :  0.0274155677808
radians(math.pi/4) :  0.0137077838904
