In this lesson, we will learn about the basics on angles.
00:00:09.040
Consider these 2 lines. When these 2 lines meet, an angle is formed.
00:00:17.100
This is the vertex of the angle and these 2 lines are the arms of the angle.
00:00:27.100
Now, this angle has a certain value.
00:00:31.030
This value happens to be 50 degrees.
00:00:35.150
Now, this symbol is the unit for angle. It is called 'degree'.
00:00:42.070
Knowing this, let's rotate this arm, to find out the different values of this angle.
00:00:49.060
Here, we can see that, the lowest value for this angle is 0 degree.
00:00:55.080
Next, let's increase the angle.
00:01:01.110
At this point, we have the angle as 90 degrees.
00:01:06.140
Let's further increase the angle. Now, we have 180 degrees, 270 degrees, finally 360 degrees for a full rotation.
00:01:36.220
Next, let's learn how to name an angle.
00:01:41.190
We can label these 3 vertex as A, B and C respectively.
00:01:52.150
Here, we can see that, this angle is between, A, B, and C.
00:02:04.070
With this, we can write, angle ABC equals to, 60 degrees.
00:02:12.070
Now, if we name it as, angle CBA, it is still the same.
00:02:20.170
Here, note that, the vertex of the angle is always the middle letter.
00:02:27.040
Therefore, we can also write the angle B, equals to 60 degrees provided that, it is not ambiguous.
00:02:37.170
That is all for this lesson.
