physics - converting radians to degrees

posted by .

i know how to convert degrees to radians..

ie: 40* x (2pi rad/360*) = 0.70 rad

.. i cant figure out how to do the opposite.. can anyone show me how? thanks!

.70 rad (360 deg/2PI rad )=

40o
radians = degrees*2*pi/360 = 0.69813
degrees = rad*360/2*pi
degrees = 0.69813*360/2*pi = 40o

you can times the radian measure by
(360/2pi)
