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

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:
