How to Convert Circles to Gradians
To convert a measurement in circles to a measurement in gradians, multiply the angle by the following conversion ratio: 400 gradians/circle.
Since one circle is equal to 400 gradians, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The angle in gradians is equal to the angle in circles multiplied by 400.
How Many Gradians Are in a Circle?
There are 400 gradians in a circle, which is why we use this value in the formula above.
1 cir = 400g
Circles and gradians are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What is a Circle?
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.
A circle is more commonly used to describe a round, symmetrical shape with no corners or edges than it is to describe plane angle. The shape is described by its radius and circumference.

What is a Gradian?
A gradian is equal to 1/400 of a revolution or circle, or 9/10°. The grad, or gon, is more precisely defined as π/200, or 1.570796 × 10-2 radians.
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.
In the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units.
