Use our **degrees to mm calculator** to convert angular measurements in **degrees** to linear measurements in **millimeters (mm)**.

**For example…**

**30 degrees to mm**: If we have a circle with a radius of**100 mm**, and we want to know the length of an arc that spans**30 degrees**, the calculator would help us determine that it’s approximately**52.36 mm**.**90 degrees to mm**: Using the same circle (radius**100 mm**), a**90-degree**arc would be about**157.08 mm**long.**180 degrees to mm**: Half of the circle’s circumference, represented by**180 degrees**, would measure roughly**314.16 mm**.

## Degrees to MM Formula

The general formula is:

**mm = (2 π r * θ) / 360**

Where:

**mm**is the length in millimeters**π**(pi) is approximately**3.14159****r**is the radius of the circle in millimeters**θ**(theta) is the angle in degrees

This formula essentially calculates the length of an arc on a circle’s circumference based on the given angle and radius.

Let’s break down the formula with a few examples:

**Example 1**:

Convert **45 degrees** to mm for a circle with a radius of **50 mm**.

mm = (2 *π* 50 * 45) / 360

mm ≈ **39.27 mm**

**Example 2**:

Find the mm equivalent of **120 degrees** on a circle with a radius of **75 mm**.

mm = (2 *π* 75 * 120) / 360

mm ≈ **157.08 mm**

**Example 3**:

Calculate the mm length for a full rotation (**360 degrees**) on a circle with a radius of **100 mm**.

mm = (2 *π* 100 * 360) / 360

mm ≈ **628.32 mm** (which is the full circumference of the circle)

## How to convert degree into mm?

Here’s a detailed explanation of how to perform this conversion:

**Determine the radius**: First, you need to know the radius of the circle or arc you’re working with. This is crucial because the same angle will result in different linear measurements depending on the circle’s size.**Identify the angle**: Clarify the angle in degrees that you want to convert. This could be any value from**0 to 360 degrees**(or even beyond for multiple rotations).**Apply the formula**: Use the formula mm = (2*π*r * θ) / 360. Here’s what each part means:- Multiply
**2**by**π**(pi) and the radius (**r**) to get the circle’s circumference. - Multiply this by the angle in degrees (
**θ**). - Divide the result by
**360**to get the proportion of the circumference that corresponds to your angle. **Calculate**: Plug in your values and perform the calculation. Be sure to use a calculator for precise results, especially when dealing with**π**.**Round appropriately**: Depending on your application, you may need to round the result to a certain number of decimal places. In engineering and manufacturing, it’s common to work with tolerances, so be mindful of the required precision.**Check units**: Ensure that your radius is in millimeters to get a result in millimeters. If your radius is in another unit, convert it to mm first.**Verify reasonableness**: As a quick check, remember that a full circle (**360 degrees**) should equal the circumference (**2πr**). Use this to gauge whether your result makes sense.

## How many degrees is 1 mm?

To find out how many degrees **1 mm** represents, we need to rearrange our conversion formula:

θ = (360 *mm) / (2* π * r)

Where:

**θ**is the angle in degrees**mm**is**1**(since we’re asking about**1 mm**)**r**is the radius of the circle in millimeters

Let’s explore this with a few examples to illustrate how the result changes based on the circle’s radius:

- For a circle with a radius of
**10 mm**:

θ = (360 *1) / (2* π *10) ≈ *5.73 degrees*

- For a circle with a radius of
**100 mm**:

θ = (360 *1) / (2* π *100) ≈ *0.573 degrees*

- For a circle with a radius of
**1000 mm**:

θ = (360 *1) / (2* π *1000) ≈ *0.0573 degrees*

## 1 Degree to MM Conversion

To convert **1 degree** to mm, we use our formula:

mm = (2 *π* r * θ) / 360

In this case, **θ** (theta) is always **1**, as we’re converting **1 degree**. Let’s break down the process:

**Set up the equation**: mm = (2*π*r * 1) / 360**Simplify**: mm = (π * r) / 180

This simplified form shows us that the mm length for **1 degree** is directly proportional to the radius of the circle. Let’s look at some examples:

- For a circle with a radius of
**50 mm**:

mm = (π *50) / 180 ≈ *0.873 mm*

- For a circle with a radius of
**100 mm**:

mm = (π *100) / 180 ≈ *1.745 mm*

- For a circle with a radius of
**1000 mm**:

mm = (π *1000) / 180 ≈ *17.45 mm*
