## About "Convert between radians and degrees"

Convert between radians and degrees :

Degrees and radians are two measuring units of angles.

If θ is a complete rotation (counter-clockwise) then θ = 2π radian. On the other hand we already know that one complete rotation (counter-clockwise) is 360°, consequently,

360° = 2π radians or 180° = π radian.

It follows that 1° = π /180 radian and 180°/ π = 1 radian.

## Conversion between radians and degrees

• To Convert from degrees to radians, we have to multiply the given angle by π/180.
• To Convert from radians to degrees, we have to multiply the given radian by 180/π
• The value of π in degrees is 180°

## Conversion between some special angles

 π = 180°2π = 360°π/2 = 90°π/3 = 60° π/6 = 30°π/4 = 45°π/2 = 270°π/3 = 120°

## Convert between radians and degrees - Examples

Example 1 :

Convert 150° into radians

Solution :

To convert degrees into radians, we have to multiply the given degree by π/180

150° = 150 x (π/180)

=  15π/18

=  5 π/6

Hence the conversion of 150° into radians is π/6

Example 2 :

Convert 3 π/4 into degrees

Solution :

To convert radians into degrees, we have to multiply the given degree by 180/π

= (3 π/4) x (180/π)

=  540/4

=  135°

Hence the conversion of 3 π/4 into degrees is 135°.

Example 3 :

Convert 100° into radians

Solution :

To convert degrees into radians we have to multiply the given degree by π/180

= 100 x (π/180)

=  10π/18

=  5 π/9

Hence the conversion of 100° into radians is π/9

Example 4 :

Convert π/8 into degrees

Solution :

To convert radians into degrees, we have to multiply the given degree by 180/π

= (π/8) x (180/π)

If we divide 180 by 8 we will get 22° as quotient and 4° as remainder. From here we have to convert this into minutes for that we have to multiply 4° by 60. So, we got 240 minutes. Then we have to divide this 240 by 8.

We have shown the above steps as the clear picture.

Hence the conversion of π/8 into degrees is 22° 30'.

Example 5 :

Convert 320° into radians

Solution :

To convert degrees into radians we have to multiply the given degree by π/180

= 320 x (π/180)

=  32π/18

=  16 π/9

Hence the conversion of 320° into radians is 16 π/9

Example 6 :

Convert 18π/5 into degrees

Solution :

To convert radians into degrees, we have to multiply the given degree by 180/π

= (18π/5x (180/π)

= (18 x 180)/5

=  648°

Hence the conversion of 18π/5 into degree is 648°
