*   Angle

 

 

Inclination between two rays having common end point is called angle.

 

 

In the above picture, OP and OR are two rays which have a common end point 0. The inclination between the rays OP and OR is called angle POR and it is denoted as . Point O is called vertex and rays OP and OR are called arms of the angle POR.

 

 

* Features of an Angle

  • Angles is measured in degree.
  • Symbol of the degree is "°".
  • Measure of an angle is written as  a° where a is a number. Ex: 45 degree is written as 45°.

 

* Types of Angles

Angles have been classified into following groups based on their measurement.

  • Acute angle
  • Right angle
  • Obtuse angle

 

 

* Acute Angle

An angle which is greater than  0°  and smaller than 90°  is called acute angle

 

 

 

* Right Angle

An angle of exactly 90° is called right angle .

 

 

 

* Obtuse Angle

An angle which is greater than 90° and smaller than 180° is called obtuse angle
