StrictMath toDegrees() Method in Java

The java.lang.StrictMath.toDegrees() method of StrictMath class in Java is used to accept an angle measured in radians as a parameter and returns its approximately equivalent angle measured in degrees. So basically it converts radians to degrees. This conversion is generally inexact.

Syntax:

public static double toDegrees(double rad)

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter rad which refers to an angle in radians which is to be converted to its equivalent degrees.



Return Values:This method returns the measurement of the angle passed as a parameter in degrees.

Examples:

Input : 2.0
Output : 114.59155902616465

Input : 0.007022
Output : 0.4023309637408641
