# radians to degrees

Today in this article we can discuss the conversion of radian into a degree. Radian is the SI unit for measuring the angles, and it is the standard unit of angular measure. The degree has been used for measurement in engineering and mathematics form a very long time, and it is also a unit of angle measurement. We can also measure temperature in degree.

## radians to degrees

Rad, is the symbol which is used to represent radians. It describes that any plane angle subtended by the circular arc to the length of that arc has been divided by the radius of that arc. If as the ratio of any two lengths then the radian is a pure number and it has no needs of any unit symbol, but in mathematical writing, rad always omitted. The degree is also the unit of arc measure or the angle measure, and it is equal to 60 minutes, 3600 seconds or 0.017 rad or 1/360th of any circle. It is the Si unit of the angular measurement.

Radian measure concept is opposed to the degree of an angle, and it has been credited to the roger cotes in the year of 1714. He can describe radian in everything, after that he recognize the naturalness as the unit of an angular measure. The choosing of the degree as the unit of rotations and angle is no one know about it or unknown, but someone relates it to that fact that 360 is approximately that number of the year.

The conversion of radian into the degree based upon the length of the circumference of any circle which is given to 2*3.141*r, here r is the radius of the loop. Here the value of 0 rad is equal to 0 degrees — moreover, the amount of π/6 rad id similar to 30 degrees. The cost of 1 rad is equivalent to 57.3, and the value of 2π rad is equal to 360 degrees.
