## How to convert radians to degrees (rad to °)

The formula for converting radians to degrees is: ° = rad × 57.2957795785523. To calculate the radian value in degrees first substitute the radian value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 radian in degrees we follow these steps:

° = rad × 57.2957795785523

° = 1 × 57.2957795785523

° = 57.2957795785523

In other words, 1 radian is equal to 57.2957795785523 degrees.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 radians to degrees is:

- Understand the conversion formula: ° = rad × 57.2957795785523
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for rad so the formula becomes: ° = 5 × 57.2957795785523
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 57.2957795785523 = 286.4788978927615 °

In summary, 5 radians is equal to 286.4788978927615 degrees.

## Converting degrees to radians

In order to convert the other way around i.e. degrees to radians, you would use the following formula: rad = ° × 0.0174532925. To convert degrees to radians first substitute the degree value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 degree in radians we follow these steps:

rad = ° × 0.0174532925

rad = 1 × 0.0174532925

rad = 0.0174532925

Or in other words, 1 degree is equal to 0.0174532925 radians.
