**Radian and Degree Measures**

- Measure of an angle is determined by the amount of rotation from the initial side to the terminal side.
- Many mathematical calculations in Geometry use degrees to measure and calculate angles.
- Degree measures are used in many practical applications in building and architecture that use

A radian is the measure of a central angle *q* that intercepts an arc ‘*s*‘ equal in length to the radius ‘*r*‘ of the circle.

**✓ Radian** is the measure of an angle that, when drawn as a central angle of a circle, intercepts an arc whose length is equal to the length of the radius of the circle.

**✓ **Radian measure for a full circle is 2π

**✓ **In radians, one complete counterclockwise revolution is 2*π *

**✓ Degrees** are used to measure direction and angle size

**✓ **Full circle = 360°.

**✓ **in degrees, one complete counterclockwise revolution is 360°.

### So, degree and radian measure are related by the equations.

360° = 2*π* radians and

180° = *π* radians

### Example 1

**Converting from Degree to Radians = multiply by π**/

**180**

** Convert 70 degrees to radians**

Solution: 70 x *π*/180

= 70 x 3.14/180 (*π* = 3.14)

= 1.221 radians

**Converting from Radians to Degrees = multiply by 180/ π**

Convert 14 radians to degrees

**Solution: **14 × 180/*π*

= 14 × 180/3.14

= 802.54 degrees
