Java toDegrees() method with Example

The java.lang.Math.toDegrees() is used to convert an angle measured in radians to an approximately equivalent angle measured in degrees.

Note: The conversion from radians to degrees is generally inexact; users should not expect cos(toRadians(90.0)) to exactly equal 0.0.

Syntax:



public static double toDegrees(double rad)

Parameter:
rad : This parameter is an angle in radians which
we want to convert in degrees.
Return :
This method returns the measurement of the angle 
rad in degrees.

Example: To show working of java.lang.Math.toDegrees() method.

        rad = (Math.PI) / 4;
        System.out.println(Math.toDegrees(rad));
