# radians()
Converts a degree measurement to its corresponding value in radians.
## Examples

```python
def setup():
deg = 45
rad = py5.radians(deg)
# prints "45 degrees is 0.7854 radians"
py5.println(round(deg, 5), 'degrees is', round(rad, 5), 'radians')
```

## Description
Converts a degree measurement to its corresponding value in radians. Radians and degrees are two ways of measuring the same thing. There are 360 degrees in a circle and `2*PI` radians in a circle. For example, `90° = PI/2 = 1.5707964`. All trigonometric functions in py5 require their parameters to be specified in radians.
This function makes a call to the numpy `radians()` function.
## Signatures
```python
radians(
degrees: Union[float, npt.ArrayLike] # degree value to convert to radians
) -> Union[float, npt.NDArray]
```
