Using the conversion formula (4.3) for radians to degrees, we see that 1 radian = 180 π degrees ≈ 57.3 ◦ . Formally, a radian is de±ned as the central angle in a circle of radius r which intercepts an arc of length r , as in Figure 4.1.2. This de±nition does not depend on the choice of r (imagine resizing Figure 4.1.2)....
