Circles to Gradians Conversion
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.
Since one circle is equal to 400 gradians, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The angle in gradians is equal to the 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.
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.
In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.
