How to Convert Radians to Circles Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Protractors are often used to measure angle

Convert radians to circles with this simple formula:

circles = radians × 0.159155

Converting a radian angle measurement to a circle measurement involves multiplying your angle by the conversion ratio to find the result. A radian is equal to 0.159155 circles, so to convert simply multiply by 0.159155.

For example:
5 rad = (5 × 0.159155) = 0.795775 cir

Radians and circles are both units used to measure angle. Learn more about angle and find more angle measurement conversion calculators. A radian is an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as rad, for example 1 rad. A circle is an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as cir, for example 1 cir.

A radian is the measurement of the angle from the start to the end of an arc equal to the radius of the circle. 1 radian is equal to 180/π, or about 57.29578°. There are about 6.28318 radians in a circle. The radian is the standard SI unit of measurement for an angle.

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