1 Radian to Degrees
There are two different measuring systems to measure an angle. Radian is a unit of measurement of an angle, where one radian is the angle made at the center of a circle by an arc and length equal to the radius of the circle. The degree is another unit that is for the measurement of an angle. When converted from 1 radian to degrees, we have 1 radian equal to 57.296 degrees. The measure of angles can be converted from radians to degrees using a formula.
To understand this 1 radian to degrees formula and the conversion of 1 radian to degrees, we will understand the meaning of each unit of angle. We will also see the radians to degrees chart in this article.

What is 1 Radian to Degrees?
The two units used to measure an angle are radians and degrees. We know that 2π radians equal 360 degrees. We will use the unitary method to determine the value of 1 radian to degrees which is equal to 57.296°. This conversion can be done by following some very basic calculations. Therefore, it is necessary to know the formulas for the conversion of units of angle, that is radians to degrees and degrees to radians.
1 Radian to Degrees Formula
When we rotate the radius completely around the circle, it completes one rotation. The angle subtended at the center of the circle by the radius after one complete rotation is 2π radians. We will use the fact that 2π radians equal 360 degrees to show the conversion of 1 radian to degrees.
2π radians = 360°
Divide the above equation by 2,
⇒ π radians = 180°
Divide the above equation by π,
⇒ 1 radian = 180°/π
⇒ 1 radian = 57.296°
Hence, 1 radian to degrees measures 57.296°
1 Radian to Degrees: Measures of Angle
The two units of measurement that are used for measuring angles are degrees and radians. We can convert the measure of any angle from radians to degrees using the conversion of 1 radian to degrees. Let us see what each unit of angle means and how to measure the angle.
Radians
When we rotate the radius completely around the circle, it completes one rotation. The angle subtended at the center of the circle by the radius after one complete rotation is 2π radians. When the length of the arc becomes equal to the length of the radius, the angle subtended at the center becomes 1 radian. We denote the unit radian as rad. Radians is the SI unit of measuring angles.
Degrees
A degree, which is referred to as the degree of arc or arc degree, is the unit of measuring a plane angle. It is denoted by the symbol (°). 360° is the angle measure for a complete rotation. Degrees is not an SI unit to measure angles but it is an accepted unit to measure.
How to Convert 1 Radian to Degrees?
The conversion of radians to degrees can be done using the formula 'Angle in Radians × 180°/π = Angle in Degrees'. We know that 360° equals 2π radians and this result can be used to convert 1 radian to degrees. 360° = 2π radians ⇒ 180° = π radians ⇒ 1 radian = 180°/π ⇒ 1 radian = 57.296°. Using the formula, different angles in radians can be converted to degrees. Let us see the radians to degrees chart where specific angles in radians are given in degrees.

1 Radian to Degrees Examples

Example 1: Show the conversion of 1 radian to degrees.
Solution: We know that 360° = 2π radians
We will use the unitary method to show the conversion of 1 radian to degrees.
Since 360° = 2π radian ⇒ 1 radian = 360°/2π = 1 radian = 180°/π = 57.296°.
Answer: Hence, 1 radian is equal to 57.296°

Example 2: Convert 1 degree to radians using the 1 radian to degrees formula.
Solution: Using the 1 radian to degrees formula, we have 1 radian = 57.296°
⇒ 1° = 1/57.296 radian
⇒ 1 degree = 0.0174533 radians
Answer: Hence, 1 degree is equal to 0.0174533 radians
FAQs on 1 Radian to Degrees
What is the Value of 1 Radian to Degrees?

How to Convert 1 Radian to Degrees?
We know that 360° equals 2π radians and this result can be used to convert 1 radian to degrees. 360° = 2π radians ⇒ 180° = π radians ⇒ 1 radian = 180°/π = 1 radian 57.296°. Hence, 1 radian is equal to 57.296°.
What is the Measure of 1 Radian in Degrees?
The conversion of radians to degrees can be done using the formula 'Angle in Radians × 180°/π = Angle in Degrees'. ⇒ 1 radian × 180°/π = Angle in Degrees ⇒ Angle in Degrees = 57.296°. Therefore, the measure of 1 radian in degrees is equal to 57.296°.
What is 1 Radian in Degrees and Minutes?
We know that 360° = 2π radians. Using this result, we have the value of 1 radian equal to 57.296°. Also, the formula for conversion of radians to minutes is 1 radian × (60 × 180)/π = 3437.747'. Hence, 1 radian is equal to 57.296 in degrees and 3437.747' in minutes.
What Is the Radian of 1 Degree?
One complete revolution of a circle is equal to 2π radians which is equivalent to 360°, therefore, we have the equation:
2π rad = 360°
1° = 2π/360 rad
1° = π/180 rad
Hence, 1 degree is equal to π/180 radians.
Can we Convert Negative Radian to Degree by Using the Radian to Degree Formula?
Yes, we can convert negative radian to a degree using the radian to degree formula. The formula is Degrees = Radians × 180 / π and it can be used for both positive and negative values.
