A grad, also known as a gon or grade, is a unit of measure for angles, where one grad is defined as one-hundredth of the right angle. It is part of a metric system of measuring angles, unlike degrees, which are derived from the historical division of a circle. Essentially, a full circle consists of 400 gradians, making the grad a useful unit in fields that require high precision.

A radian is a unit of angular measure in the International System of Units (SI). One radian is the angle created when the arc length is equal to the radius of the circle. Essentially, the measure of a radian is universal as it is based on the radius and circumference of a circle. There are approximately 6.28318 (2π) radians in a full circle, making radians a fundamental unit in mathematics and physics.

Grad | Radian (rad) |
---|---|

10 | 0.15708 |

20 | 0.31416 |

30 | 0.47124 |

40 | 0.62832 |

50 | 0.78540 |

60 | 0.94248 |

70 | 1.09956 |

80 | 1.25664 |

90 | 1.41372 |

100 | 1.57080 |

1 grad = 0.015708 rad

1 rad = 63.662 grads

**
Example 1:
**

convert 100 grads to radians:

100 grads = 100 × 0.015708 rad ≈ 1.5708 rad

**
Example 2:
**

convert 50 grads to radians:

50 grads = 50 × 0.015708 rad ≈ 0.7854 rad

The conversion from grads to radians represents a bridge between two systems of angular measurement. The gradian, which divides a right angle into 100 units, was introduced as part of the metric system. Conversely, the radian, which is based on the radius of a circle, became the SI unit for angles. The grad to radian converter emerged as an essential tool for mathematicians, scientists, and engineers to transition between these units.

1. What is a grad in measurement?
**

A grad is a unit of angle in the metric system where a right angle is divided into 100 units.

**
2. How is radian defined?
**

A radian is the angle subtended at the center of a circle by an arc whose length is equal to the circle's radius.

**
3. Can I convert gradians to degrees using this tool?
**

Yes, this converter is designed to convert between gradians and radians, and indirectly to degrees.
