### What are Radian and Degree

A radian is a unit of angular measure in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as the angle subtended at the center of a circle by an arc whose length is equal to the radius of the circle. In essence, one radian is the angle at which the arc length equals the radius. There are approximately 6.283 radians in a full circle (2π radians).

Definition of Degree

A degree is a unit of angular measure used in many fields, such as geometry, astronomy, and mapping. One degree is 1/360 of a full circle, so a circle contains 360 degrees. It is not a SI unit, however, it is widely used due to its practicality and historical significance. Each degree can be subdivided into 60 minutes, and each minute can be further divided into 60 seconds.
