# military

 Unit Symbol Symbol(plain text) Value Notes milliradian Show source$mil$ mil 785.398163397 Unit of measure of angle used in the army. Milliradian (mrad, mil) is the angle at which you can see a curve of one meter from a distance of one kilometer. One milliradian corresponds to one thousandth of a radian, or approximately 1/6283.2 of a turn. $1 \ mil = \dfrac{1}{1000}\ rad = \dfrac{180^{\circ}}{1000 \pi} \approx \dfrac{360^{\circ}}{6283.2}$ In practice, military applications usually use approximated units, e.g.: 1/6400 of a turn (→ see the milliradian NATO), 1/6000 of a turn (→ see the Soviet milliradian), 1/6300 of a turn (→ see the Swedish milliradian) Sometimes, to emphasize the theoretical nature of a unit being exactly one thousandth of a radian, the term real milliradian is used. milliradian (NATO) Show source$mil$ mil 800 A unit of measure of angle that is an approximation of the real milliradian used by NATO forces. One NATO milliradian corresponds to 1/6400 of a turn. Check out real milliradian unit to learn more.$1\ mil_{NATO} = \dfrac{360^{\circ}}{6400} = \dfrac{\pi}{3200}\ rad$ milliradian (Soviet Union) Show source$mil$ mil 750 A measure of angle that is an approximation of the real milliradian used in the army of the former Soviet Union. One Soviet milliradian corresponds to 1/6000 of a turn. Check out real milliradian unit to learn more.$1\ mil_{Sov.} = \dfrac{360^{\circ}}{6000} = \dfrac{\pi}{3000}\ rad$ milliradian (Sweden) Show source$mil$ mil 787.5 A unit of angle measurement that is an approximation of the real milliradian used, among others, in Sweden and Finland. One Swedish milliradian corresponds to 1/6300 of a turn. Sometimes also called streck. Check out real milliradian unit to learn more.$1\ mil_{Sweden} = \dfrac{360^{\circ}}{6300} = \dfrac{\pi}{3150}\ rad$

# Some facts

• The angle is part of the plane bounded by two half-lines having a common origin.
• The half-lines forming an angle are called the arms, and the point in which the arms are in contact is called the vertex.
• In everyday language, we often say "angle", when we think the angular measure.
• Angles are used to give location of object on the map. Point on the map is localized by two angles (coordinates): latitude and longitude. The reason of this, is fact, that the Earth is roughly spherical shape.
• In everyday life, most common angle units are degrees. In cartography, minutes (1/60 of degree) and - in case of more detailed measurements - seconds (1/60 of minute) are useful. Mathematicians and physicists use mainly radians.
• The concept of angle is stricly related to trigonometric functions, which have angle argument. Example trigonometric functions are sinus (sin), cosinus (cos) or tangens (tg).
• There are more general concepts of angle expanding definition to 3D space or even to spaces with more than three dimensions. The equivalent of plane angle in three-dimensional space is solid angle.
• If we sort arms of the angle, in such a way that one arm will be considered first and the second one final, then we will call such angle - directed angle. The directed angle can be defined by pair of two vectors with common origin {u, v}.
• There are many interesting angle related properties:
• The sum of all angles in triangle is 180 degrees (π).
• The sum of all angles in any quadrilateral (so in rectangle or square too) is 360 degrees (2π).
• In trapezium (br-eng: trapezium, us-eng: trapezoid) the sum of the neighbouring angles next to both short and long basis is 180 degrees (π).
• Circle can contains two kinds of angles:
• Inscribed angle – when its vertex is localized on boundaries of circle.
• Central angle – when its vertex is localized in the center of circle.

# How to convert

• Enter the number to field "value" - enter the NUMBER only, no other words, symbols or unit names. You can use dot (.) or comma (,) to enter fractions.
Examples:
• 1000000
• 123,23
• 999.99999
• Find and select your starting unit in field "unit". Some unit calculators have huge number of different units to select from - it's just how complicated our world is...
• And... you got the result in the table below. You'll find several results for many different units - we show you all results we know at once. Just find the one you're looking for.
