How to convert?

    Hello everyone,

    I need help with converting or changing degrees to radians in Microsoft Excel.

    Currently I'm writing SIN and COS functions but the default angles are in degrees, not radians. How do I format it to radians?

    Excel has a RADIANS function. The syntax is =RADIANS(angle).

    You may want to check your answers because the default on my copy of Excel is in radians.

    To get to radians from degrees:

    [tex] x = \pi \frac { \Theta} {180} [/tex]

    x is the angle in radians
    [itex] \Theta [/itex] is the angle in degrees.

    As far as I can tell Excell defaults to Radians.
