# How do you convert degrees, minutes, and seconds into radians?

May 4, 2018

First convert your 'd.m.s' measure to decimal degrees (dd), and then convert that to radians.
$r a d = \pi \times \frac{d + \frac{m}{60} + \frac{s}{3600}}{180}$

#### Explanation:

One degree is equal 0.01745329252 radians. 1° = π/180°
