# Gradians to Radians Conversion

Enter the angle in gradians below to get the value converted to radians.

**Results in Radians:**

^{g}= 0.015708 rad

## How to Convert Gradians to Radians

To convert a gradian measurement to a radian measurement, multiply the angle by the conversion ratio. One gradian is equal to 0.015708 radians, so use this simple formula to convert:

The angle in radians is equal to the gradians multiplied by 0.015708.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 gradians to radians using the formula above.

^{g}= (5 × 0.015708) = 0.07854 rad

Gradians and radians are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Gradians

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.^{[1]}

This unit simplifies the measurements of right angles, as 90° is equal to 100 gradians.

Gradians | Degrees |
---|---|

0 grad | 0° |

100 grad | 90° |

200 grad | 180° |

300 grad | 270° |

400 grad | 360° |

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 1

^{g}, 1 gr, or 1 grd.

## Radians

A radian is the measurement of angle equal to the start to the end of an arc divided by the radius of the circle or arc.^{[2]} 1 radian is equal to 180/π, or about 57.29578°. There are about 6.28318 radians in a circle.

The radian is the SI derived unit for angle in the metric system. Radians can be abbreviated as *rad*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as * ^{c}*,

*r*, or

*. For example, 1 radian can be written as 1 rad, 1*

^{R}^{c}, 1 r, or 1

^{R}.

Radians are often expressed using their definition. The formula to find radians is θ = s/r, where the angle in radians θ is equal to the arc length s divided by the radius r. Thus, radians may also be expressed as the formula of arc length over the radius.
