RADIANS

Converts a numeric expression from degree values to radian values.

See also DEGREES.

Syntax

RADIANS( expr )

Arguments

Parameter Description
expr Numeric expression

Returns

Always returns a floating point result of the value in radians.

Notes

  • If the value is NULL, the result is NULL.

Examples

For these examples, consider the following table and contents:

CREATE TABLE trig(f DOUBLE);

INSERT INTO trig VALUES (0), (15), (22.5)
   , (30), (45), (60), (67.5), (75), (90);

 -- Equivalent to these values in radians:
 --  (0), (PI()/12), (PI()/8), (PI()/6)
 -- ,(PI()/4), (PI()/3), (3*PI()/8), (5*PI()/12), (PI()/2);
