How to Convert Gradians to Revolutions
To convert a measurement in gradians to a measurement in revolutions, divide the angle by the following conversion ratio: 400 gradians/revolution.
Since one revolution is equal to 400 gradians, you can use this simple formula to convert:
revolutions = gradians ÷ 400
The angle in revolutions is equal to the angle in gradians divided by 400.
Gradians and revolutions are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Is a Gradian?
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.

What Is a Revolution?
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.
