Radian

A radian is a unit of measurement for angles. In a circle, the measure of a central angle in radians is the ratio of the length of the intercepted arc to the length of the circle's radius.

A complete angle has measure $2\pi$, since a complete angle "intercepts" the whole circumference of the circle. Thus, radians can be converted to degrees: $2\pi\; rad=360^\circ$ or $\pi \;rad=180^\circ$. This article is a stub. Help us out by expanding it.
