Gradians to Revolutions Conversion
Enter the angle in gradians below to get the value converted to revolutions.
How to Convert Gradians to Revolutions
To convert a gradian measurement to a revolution measurement, divide the angle by the conversion ratio. One revolution is equal to 400 gradians, so use this simple formula to convert:
The angle in revolutions is equal to the gradians divided by 400.
Gradians and revolutions are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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.
A revolution, or turn, is equal to 1 rotation around a circle, or 360°. Revolutions are commonly used to measure the speed of rotation, for example when measuring the revolutions per minute (RPM) of a vehicle's engine.
A revolution is sometimes also referred to as a turn, cycle, or complete rotation. Revolutions can be abbreviated as r, and are also sometimes abbreviated as rev or cyc. For example, 1 revolution can be written as 1 r, 1 rev, or 1 cyc.
