## RADIANS Function Syntax and Inputs:

``=RADIANS(angle)``

angle – An angle in degrees.

The DEGREES Function converts radians into degrees.

``=RADIANS(-270)``

The RADIANS Function works exactly the same in Google Sheets as in Excel:

You can also use the RADIANS function in VBA. Type:

``application.worksheetfunction.radians(angle)``

Executing the following VBA statements

``````Range("B2") = Application.WorksheetFunction.Radians(Range("A2"))

will produce the following results

For the function arguments (angle, etc.), you can either enter them directly into the function, or define variables to use instead.
