## What is the Formula to convert Compass Points to Radians?

The formula to convert given angle from Compass Points to Radians is:

Angle_{(Radians)} = Angle_{(Compass Points)} × π / 16

Substitute the given value of angle in compass points, i.e., Angle_{(Compass Points)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the angle in radians, i.e., Angle_{(Radians)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a ship's navigation system shifts by 8 compass points to adjust its course.

Convert this direction from compass points to Radians.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in compass points is:

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 8

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from compass points to radians is:

Angle_{(Radians)} = Angle_{(Compass Points)} × π / 16

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Compass Points)} = 8** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Radians)} = 8 × 3.14159265359 / 16

Angle_{(Radians)} = 1.5708

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **8 compass point** is equal to **1.5708 rad**.

The angle is **1.5708 rad**, in radians.

### Consider that a hiker adjusts their direction by 4 compass points to stay on track.

Convert this direction from compass points to Radians.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in compass points is:

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 4

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from compass points to radians is:

Angle_{(Radians)} = Angle_{(Compass Points)} × π / 16

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Compass Points)} = 4** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Radians)} = 4 × 3.14159265359 / 16

Angle_{(Radians)} = 0.7854

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **4 compass point** is equal to **0.7854 rad**.

The angle is **0.7854 rad**, in radians.

## Compass Points

Compass points are a unit of angular measurement used in navigation and cartography to represent directions on a compass. Traditionally, the compass is divided into 32 points, each representing 11.25 degrees. Compass points are essential in maritime navigation, aviation, and orienteering, providing a simple and standardized way to describe directions.

## Radians

Radians are a fundamental unit of angular measurement in the International System of Units (SI). One radian is the angle subtended at the center of a circle by an arc whose length is equal to the radius of the circle. Radians are essential in mathematics and physics, particularly in calculus and trigonometry, where they simplify equations and allow for the natural expression of rotational and periodic phenomena.
