 Feb 13 awarded Notable Question Dec 1 awarded Popular Question Aug 9 awarded Scholar Aug 9 accepted Why are radians more natural than any other angle unit? Aug 9 comment Why are radians more natural than any other angle unit? When you say 1 angular unit = 1 always, this means 1 degree = 1 always ($n=360$), right? And when $n=2\pi$ we have 1 radian = 1 always. Why isn't it valid to compare them and say 1 radian = 1 = 1 degree, if we have used the word 'always'? Aug 8 awarded Commentator Aug 8 comment Why are radians more natural than any other angle unit? Okay. If I'm not misunderstanding, doesn't this mean Physikslover is incorrect in saying it depends on the system, since 1 radian isn't the same as 1 degree? Aug 8 comment Why are radians more natural than any other angle unit? Would $1\,\textrm{rad}=1$ be false inside the degrees system? Therefore the truth of $1\,\textrm{rad}=1$ is social, and David Zaslavsky's statement that 'degree' is a fancy name for $\frac{\pi}{180}$ is only true inside the radians system? (sorry for continuing with all these questions. I'm genuinely just trying to understand) Aug 7 awarded Editor Aug 7 revised Why are radians more natural than any other angle unit?
