360 A degree is subdivided into minutes. 1° = 60 ' A minute is subdivided into seconds. 1 = 60"
' Angle measures can be given in radians. When a central angle of a circle intercepts an arc that has the same length as the radius of the circle, the measure of this angle is defined to be one radian.
r To change from degrees to radians, multiply by π
180 To change from radians to degrees, multiply by 180°
