IOW, the calculated value of 46.3 degrees is now in the number 1 position in the stack. What is the fastest mens of viewing this value as radians?
Solved! Go to Solution.

creates CST variable at the current directory.
Your custom menu can be accessed at any time by pressing LeftShift and MENU (CUSTOM).
You may have different CUSTOM menus in different directories. Experiment!

I do appreciate your help and was able to get this to work but what effort it took! I don't think anyone in his right mind would ever go to such trouble of typing commands into the keyboard and accessing a special chracter menu to do such a basic conversion.
I suppose the only practical solution is to just do the math myself every time. (divide by 180 and multiply by pi). Or perhaps I can write a function that I could call. I am just learning the HP50g but I assume it is possible to write and store such functions. But in the end I was hoping that _easy_ conversions would be built in to the calculator.
Thank you again for your help on this.

Thank you for your help but I am still confused. I press and type "menu". Then I press and I get "Too few arguments".
Can you elaborate on your method?

Get your calculator in RPN.
Press
Now you have << D>R >> in level 1:
Press
That is all it takes.
To check let's convert 12 deggees to radians:
Press
You should get:
1: .209439510239
I hope this helps, the fact that you can redefine the keys in the 50g is one of the features that I must like.

I also came up with an alternative approach:
I created an equation (for example, to convert rads to degrees: x * 180/pi=deg) and then saved this as a variable. Then I can invoke the solver , choose my saved eqaution, specify an input variable, solve and the value is output to the stack.
