## How to Convert Radians to Circles To convert a radian measurement to a circle measurement, multiply the angle by the conversion ratio. One radian is equal to 0.159155 circles, so use this simple formula to convert:

The angle in circles is equal to the radians multiplied by 0.159155.

For example, here's how to convert 5 radians to circles using the formula above.
5 rad = (5 × 0.159155) = 0.795775 cir

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

## Circles

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

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.
