Definition of Radian

Definition of Radian

A radian is the angle at the centre of the circle subtended (made) by an arc with the same length as the radius.

There are \(2\pi\) radians in a full rotation (once around the circle).

One radian is equal to \(\dfrac{180}{\pi}\) degrees, which is approximately equal to \(57.3^\circ\).


The aim of this dictionary is to provide definitions to common mathematical terms. Students learn a new math skill every week at school, sometimes just before they start a new skill, if they want to look at what a specific term means, this is where this dictionary will become handy and a go-to guide for a student.
