Is there an angle measuring more than 360 degrees ? What do you call it ? My professor said there is no such thing. But I doubt it.

    If you notice, more than 360 degrees would start another cycle.

    361 degrees would be 1 degree.. 362 = 2 363 = 3 and so on

    And wait... that's where modular arithmetic comes in

    I asked this because I am seeing angles more than 360 degrees sometimes :)

    If you want to find an angle measure more than 360, it'd be\(\mod{(x,360)}\)

    What about modular arithmetic ?

    Yeah, 720 degrees is again 360 degrees or 0 degrees :)

    For example, 480 degrees is actually \(\mod({480,360}) = 120^{\circ}\)

    I copied it from here (openstudy.com) when openstudy was not yet like this. I copied it from the openstudy feedback section. I think that time is when openstudy is just starting and the homepage is showing already the sections. The homepage has different kinds of pictures from the different sections then I saw this picture from the openstudy feedback sections and I copied it. I think Physics section has a atomic model pic and chemistry has a graduated cylinder.
