### Description

#### Degrees (°):

A degree is measuring unit of angle measurement. The symbol of a degree is "°". A full complete circle is divided into 360 degrees. It is an accepted unit of SI unit within the SI brochure. One complete circle is equal to 2π radians, one degree is equivalent to π/180 or 0.0174532925 radians.

The angle made by two radius of a circle makes an arc and that arc creates an angle when we draw lines from its two endpoints to a center of a circle is called Radian. Radian is measuring unit used to measure angles in the standard unit of measurement. The symbol of a radian is "rad". one radian is about 57.296 angular degrees. 2π rad or 6.28318 radians makes a complete circle.

### How to change degrees to radians?

#### For converting degrees to radians we will go with an example.

Example:
Convert 90 degrees in radians?
We know 1°= 0.0174532925 radians;
1 rad = 57.296 °
90° = __ radians
90x 0.0174532925 = 1.5707963268 rad (We know 1 degree = 0.01745 rad)
