**Results in Degrees:**

1 r = 360° 0′ 0″

## How to Convert Revolutions to Degrees

To convert a revolution measurement to a degree measurement, multiply the angle by the conversion ratio. One revolution is equal to 360 degrees, so use this simple formula to convert:

The angle in degrees is equal to the revolutions multiplied by 360.

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

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

## Revolutions

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.

## Degrees

A degree is a measure of angle equal to 1/360th of a revolution, or circle.^{[1]} The number 360 has 24 divisors, making it a fairly easy number to work with.
There are also 360 days in the Persian calendar year, and many theorize that early astronomers used 1 degree per day.

The degree is an SI accepted unit for angle for use with the metric system. A degree is sometimes also referred to as a degree of arc, arc degree, or arcdegree. Degrees can be abbreviated as *°*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *deg*. For example, 1 degree can be written as 1° or 1 deg.

Degrees can also be expressed using minutes and seconds as an alternative to using the decimal form. Minutes and seconds are expressed using the prime (′) and double-prime (″) characters, although a single-quote and double-quote are often used for convenience.

One minute is equal to 1/60th of a degree and one second is equal to 1/60th of a minute.

Protractors are commonly used to measure angles in degrees. They are semi-circle or full-circle devices with degree markings allowing a user to measure an angle in degrees. Learn more about how to use a protractor or download a printable protractor.
