## moongazer 3 years ago 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.

1. ParthKohli

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

2. ParthKohli

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

3. moongazer

ok thanks! :)

4. ParthKohli

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

5. moongazer

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

6. ParthKohli

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

7. moongazer

8. ParthKohli

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

9. ParthKohli

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

10. moongazer

ohh I don't know that thing

11. ParthKohli

Hey did you use photoshop to make that thing blue?

12. moongazer

I don't use Photoshop :)

13. moongazer

But I think it is fun knowing things like that

14. moongazer

:)

15. ParthKohli

How did you make that? :O

16. moongazer

the modular arithmetic

17. ParthKohli

I mean the background is supposed to be grey

18. moongazer

what that?

19. ParthKohli

Your display pic... how is the background blue? Photoshop?

20. moongazer

ohh my pic. I copied it here. Is it not allowed?

21. ParthKohli

No, it is but how did you make the background blue?

22. moongazer

i'll remove it if it is not allowed :)

23. ParthKohli

No no.. it is completely allowed

24. ParthKohli

Just wanted to know how you made the background blue :)

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.

27. ParthKohli

Wow

28. moongazer

I copied it when openstudy looks like this. :) http://dialectmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/OpenStudy1.jpg

Nice stuff man
