Radians
What is a 'radian'?A radian is the angle subtended at the centre of a circle by an arc the same length as theradius of the circle.Units1

Arc lengthThe arc length is proportional to its subtended angle.Hence, if 
θ
(theta) is in
degrees
and '
l' 
is the arc length:An angle can be expressed in
radians
by dividing the arc length by the radius.Therefore
θ
in radians is given by:Therefore for a circle(a 360 deg. angle), where the arc length is '2
π
r' and the radius is 'r' ,the number of radians is 2
π
r/r , i.e. 2
π

Sector areaThe area of a sector is proportional to the angle its arc subtends at the centre.If a sector contains an angle of 
θ
o
then its area is given by:However, if 
θ
is in radians, remembering there are 2
π
radians in a circle:
