Discover the ease of converting turns to gons with Newtum's Turn to Gon Converter. This intuitive tool simplifies angle conversions, sparking your curiosity to explore more.

A 'turn' is a unit of angle measurement that represents a full rotation or circle. It signifies a 360-degree sweep, which means that one turn equals the total angle that exists in a circle. This term is commonly used in various fields, including mathematics, navigation, and engineering, to describe complete circular movements or rotations. It is a convenient measure when discussing rotations and angles.

A 'gon', also known as a gradian, is a unit of plane angle measurement where one full circle is divided into 400 gons. This metric unit is particularly useful in fields like surveying and civil engineering because it simplifies calculation with its base-10 subdivision. Unlike degrees, which are based on a division by 360, gons make for easy decimal calculations given its closer relation to the metric system.

Turn | Gon |
---|---|

0.01 tr | 4 gon |

0.05 tr | 20 gon |

0.1 tr | 40 gon |

0.25 tr | 100 gon |

0.5 tr | 200 gon |

0.75 tr | 300 gon |

1 tr | 400 gon |

1.25 tr | 500 gon |

1.5 tr | 600 gon |

1.75 tr | 700 gon |

2 tr | 800 gon |

1 turn = 400 gon

0.01 turn = 4 gon

**
Example 1:
**

Convert 0.5 turn to gon:

0.5 turn = 0.5 × 400 gon = 200 gon

**
Example 2:
**

Convert 1.25 turns to gons:

1.25 turns = 1.25 × 400 gon = 500 gon

The Turn to Gon Converter traces its origins to the need for a more precise and metric-friendly unit of angle measurement. Developed for applications in surveying and civil engineering, the conversion from the traditional turn to gons simplifies calculations and supports the metric system's base-10 structure.
