toDegrees

Convert angles to degrees

Syntax

``[D1,...,Dn] = toDegrees(fromUnits,A1,...,An)``

Description

example

````[D1,...,Dn] = toDegrees(fromUnits,A1,...,An)` converts the angles specified by `A1,...,An` from the units specified by `fromUnits` to degrees. This function is useful for getting angles in degrees when you do not know the input units until run-time. ```

Examples

collapse all

Convert several values to degrees from radians.

`[D1,D2,D3,D4] = toDegrees("radians",pi/2,pi,3*pi/2,2*pi)`
```D1 = 90 ```
```D2 = 180 ```
```D3 = 270 ```
```D4 = 360 ```

Convert the same values to degrees by specifying an array.

```A = [pi/2 pi 3*pi/2 2*pi]; D = toDegrees("radians",A)```
```D = 1×4 90 180 270 360 ```

Input Arguments

collapse all

Input unit, specified as `"degrees"` or `"radians"`. You can also specify abbreviations such as `"deg"` and `"rad"`.

Data Types: `char` | `string`

Angles in degrees or radians, specified as one or more numeric arrays.

Output Arguments

collapse all

Angles in degrees, returned as the same number of numeric arrays as in `A1,...,An`. The size of each output array matches the size of the corresponding input array.
