Are you struggling with converting degrees to radians? Don't worry; you're definitely at the right place! Come along to learn what is a radian, **how to convert degrees to radians,** and how to use our handy converter!👩🏫

## How do I convert degrees to radians?

Let's start from the beginning - what is a radian? Radian (represented by the symbol rad) is a standard unit for measuring angles. **1 radian is approximately 57.2958 degrees.**

To convert **degrees to radians,** you can use the following formula:

`radians = π/180° × degrees`

For instance, if you were trying to determine what is a 90° angle in radians, you would compute the following calculations:

`radians = π/180° × 90° = π/2 rad ≈ 1.5708 rad`

Sounds cumbersome? Don't worry, Omni degrees to radians converter **will do all the work for you!**

## How does the degrees to radians converter work?

Now that you know how to turn degrees into radians, let's discuss how the **degree to radian calculator** works; it's pretty straightforward!

All you need to do is **enter the degree of your interest,** and the degree to radian calculator will **convert your input into radians.** By default, you can enter your angular unit as degrees, but you can also change the default unit and select the one that best fits your needs!
