Full Circle Degrees


This image of a protractor shows that a full rotation is 360°

And Half a rotation is 180°, called a Straight Angle

And Quarter of a rotation is 90°, called a Right Angle

And a full rotation is also equal to 2π Radians, so here are some equivalent values:

Rotations Radians Degrees
¼ π/2 90°
½ π 180°
1 2π 360°
3π 540°
2 4π 720°
