A degree (in full, a degree o arc, arc degree, or arcdegree), uisually denotit bi ° (the degree seembol), is a measurement o plane angle, representin 1360 o a full rotation. It is nae an SI unit, as the SI unit for angles is radian, but it is mentioned in the SI brochur as an acceptit unit.[1] Acause a full rotation equals 2π radians, ane degree is equivalent tae π/180 radians.
