Description

The radian is the standard unit of angular measure, used in many areas of mathematics. It describes the plane angle subtended by a circular arc as the length of the arc divided by the radius of the arc. In the absence of any symbol radians are assumed, and when degrees are meant the symbol $$^{\ circ}$$ is used.
