Angles
are divided into four classes according to their measure. A reflex
angle is an angle that measures more than 1/2 of a
full circle and less than afull circle.
Classes of Angles
Degree Measure  Radian Measure  Class Name 
α < 90° 
α < π/2 rad. 
Acute angle 
α = 90° 
α = π/2 rad. 
Right angle 
90° < α < 180° 
π / 2 < α < π
rad. 
Obtuse angle 
α = 180° 
α = π rad. 
Straight angle 
180 < α < 360° 
π < α < 2π
rad. 
Reflex angle 
α = 360° 
α = 2π rad.
