Python Math: Convert degree to radian

Python Math: Exercise-1 with Solution

Write a Python program to convert degree to radian.
Note : The radian is the standard unit of angular measure, used in many areas of mathematics. An angle's measurement in radians is numerically equal to the length of a corresponding arc of a unit circle; one radian is just under 57.3 degrees (when the arc length is equal to the radius).

Test Data:
Degree : 15
Expected Result in radians: 0.2619047619047619

Sample Solution-1:

Python Code:

pi=22/7
degree = float(input("Input degrees: "))
radian = degree*(pi/180)
print(radian)

Sample Output:

Input degrees: 90

Sample Solution-2:

Use math.pi and the degrees to radians formula to convert the angle from degrees to radians.

Python Code:

from math import pi
def degrees_to_rads(deg):
  return (deg * pi) / 180.0
print(degrees_to_rads(180))
print(degrees_to_rads(90))

Sample Output:

Python: Tips of the Day

Getting rid of unwanted characters:

You can get rid of whitespaces or any specific character using strip methods in Python. You can use either plain strip for both sides, lstrip for the left side and rstrip for the right side only.

str="+++Welcome python+++"
str.strip()

print(str)

Output:

+++Welcome python+++
