## What Is a Circle?

A circle is a unit used to measure angle.

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.

## How Much Is a Circle?

A circle is the equivalent of 1 revolution around a circle, or 360°.

## How to Convert Circles

To convert circles to another unit of angle, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor.
A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.^{[1]}

You can find the conversion factors for circles in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the angle measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

circles × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
