RD Sharma Solutions Class 11 Measurement Of Angles

RD Sharma Solutions Class 11 Chapter 4

The amount of rotation about the point of intersection of two planes or lines is called an Angle. It is generally denoted by α,θ, β etc.

Angles are measured in radians,  degrees, or gradians.

Types Properties
Acute Angle Less than 90 Degree
Right Angle Exactly Equal to 90 Degree
Obtuse Angle Greater than 90 Degree
Reflex Angle Greater than 180 Degree
Straight Angle Exactly equal to 180 Degree

The Angles measured in an Anticlockwise direction are Positive Angles whereas the angles measured in clockwise direction are Negative Angles. The corner points of an angle is called Vertex.

Degree: It is represented by ‘°’.

1 Minute = 1/60th of degree and 1 Second = 1/60th of minute.

Radian: This is the SI unit of angle and is denoted by ‘rad’. In a circle, there are 2π radians.

i.e. 360 Degree = 2π radian. Therefore, 1 radian =  π/180
