Convert Circles to Gradians
Enter the angle in circles below to get the value converted to gradians.
How to Convert Circles to Gradians
To convert a circle measurement to a gradian measurement, multiply the angle by the conversion ratio. One circle is equal to 400 gradians, so use this simple formula to convert:
The angle in gradians is equal to the circles multiplied by 400.
Circles and gradians are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
A circle is the equivalent of 1 revolution around a circle, or 360°.
A circle is sometimes also referred to as a revolution. Circles can be abbreviated as cir, for example 1 circle can be written as 1 cir.
This unit simplifies the measurements of right angles, as 90° is equal to 100 gradians.
A gradian is sometimes also referred to as a grad, gon, or grade. Gradians can be abbreviated as g, and are also sometimes abbreviated as gr or grd. For example, 1 gradian can be written as 1g, 1 gr, or 1 grd.
