# What is the measurement of a circle?

**circle**is

**measured**in degrees or radians - for example: 90° or 2π - a quarter of the

**circle**, 180° or π - a half of the

**circle**. The arc is smaller than 360°(or 2 π displaystyle 2pi 2π) because that is the whole

**circle**.

People also ask, how do you find the measurement of a circle?

To **calculate** the diameter of a **circle**, multiply the radius by 2. If you don't **have** the radius, divide the circumference of the **circle** by π to **get** the diameter. If you don't **have** the radius or the circumference, divide the area of the **circle** by π and then **find** that number's square root to **get** the radius.

Additionally, how do you measure inches in a circle?

You can calculate the **circle's** circumference in **inches** with pi in the equations circumference = 2 * radius * pi and circumference = diameter * pi. Locate the **circle's** center, and **measure** the length from its center to a point on its edge to find the radius. For an example, suppose the **measurement** is 5 **inches**.

A full **circle** is **360 degrees** because of the Babylonian's usage of the sexagesimal system, number of days in a year and also because **360** is highly composite.
