# Radians and Degrees

TLDRThis transcript explains the concepts of angles measured in degrees and radians, highlighting the importance of understanding both systems. It defines a radian as the angle formed when the arc length of a circle is equal to its radius. The video teaches how to calculate angles in radians given arc length and radius, and how to convert between degrees and radians using the conversion factor Ο. It also covers common angles in radians and their positions on the unit circle, aiding in the understanding of trigonometry.

###### Takeaways

- π Angles can be measured in degrees or radians, with radians being the central angle of a circle where the arc length equals the radius.
- π΅ The symbol for radians is the absence of a degree symbol (Β°), so a number without a circle represents radians.
- π€ To define a radian: an angle with an arc length equal to the radius of the circle measures 1 radian.
- π The formula to find the angle in radians is ΞΈ = s/r, where ΞΈ is the angle, s is the arc length, and r is the radius.
- π One full revolution of a circle is 360 degrees or 2Ο radians.
- π To convert degrees to radians, multiply the degree measure by Ο/180.
- π To convert radians to degrees, multiply the radian measure by 180/Ο.
- π Common radian values and their corresponding locations are Ο/4 (45Β°), 3Ο/4 (135Β°), 5Ο/4 (225Β°), 7Ο/4 (315Β°), Ο/3 (60Β°), 2Ο/3 (120Β°), 4Ο/3 (240Β°), and 5Ο/3 (300Β°).
- π To graph angles in standard position, convert radians to degrees to find the appropriate quadrant.
- π The video script also mentions a comprehensive online trigonometry course available on Udemy, covering a variety of topics from basic concepts to more advanced trigonometry problems.
- π Remembering the positions of common angles in radians is crucial for solving problems and understanding the unit circle.

###### Q & A

### How are angles typically measured?

-Angles can be measured in either degrees or radians. Degrees are indicated with a small circle on top of the angle, while radians do not have this symbol.

### What is the definition of a radian?

-A radian is the measure of the central angle of a circle such that the arc length of the circle is equal to the radius of the circle.

### How can you calculate the angle in radians given the arc length and radius?

-To find the angle in radians, divide the arc length (s) by the radius (r). The result will give you the angle in radians.

### How many radians are in a full circle?

-A full circle, or one full revolution, is equal to 2Ο radians.

### What is the conversion factor from degrees to radians?

-The conversion factor from degrees to radians is Ο radians per 180 degrees.

### How do you convert 60 degrees to radians?

-To convert 60 degrees to radians, multiply the degree measure by Ο/180, which simplifies to Ο/3 radians.

### What is the process for converting negative angles from degrees to radians?

-To convert negative angles from degrees to radians, multiply the negative degree measure by Ο/180, and simplify the result to get the radian measure.

### How do you convert radians into degrees?

-To convert radians into degrees, multiply the radian measure by 180/Ο, and simplify the expression to get the degree measure.

### What are some common angles in radians and their corresponding locations on the unit circle?

-Common angles in radians include Ο/4 (45 degrees), 3Ο/4 (135 degrees), 5Ο/4 (225 degrees), 7Ο/4 (315 degrees), Ο/3 (60 degrees), 2Ο/3 (120 degrees), Ο/6 (30 degrees), 5Ο/6 (150 degrees), and 7Ο/6 (210 degrees).

### How can you graph an angle of Ο/4 radians in standard position?

-To graph Ο/4 radians in standard position, first convert it to degrees, which is 45 degrees. Then, draw the angle on the unit circle between the 0 and 90-degree marks.

### What are the angles on the x and y axis in radians?

-The angles on the x and y axis in radians are 0 (0 degrees), Ο/2 (90 degrees), Ο (180 degrees), 3Ο/2 (270 degrees), and 2Ο (360 degrees).
