Revolutions to Gradians Conversion
Enter the angle in revolutions below to get the value converted to gradians.
How to Convert Revolutions to Gradians
To convert a revolution measurement to a gradian measurement, multiply the angle by the conversion ratio. One revolution is equal to 400 gradians, so use this simple formula to convert:
The angle in gradians is equal to the revolutions multiplied by 400.
Revolutions and gradians are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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.
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.
