# Convert degree to half circle

Learn how to convert 1 degree to half circle step by step.

## Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(degree\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(half \text{ } circle\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left(radian\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(degree\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}\left(radian\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}\left(rad\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(half \text{ } circle\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} π\left(radian\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} π\left(rad\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(degree\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(half \text{ } circle\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(radian\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} π}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(radian\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(rad\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} π} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(rad\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left(rad\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} π} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left(rad\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$\dfrac{π}{180.0} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times π$$
Cancel factors on both sides
$$\text{Cancel factors}$$
$$\dfrac{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{π}}}{180.0} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{π}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$$\dfrac{1.0}{180.0} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{1.0}{180.0}$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\approx0.0055555556\approx5.5556 \times 10^{-3}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(degree\right)\approx{\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 5.5556 \times 10^{-3}}\left(half \text{ } circle\right)$$
