Let’s do a little brain test right this moment. Without prior notice or recourse to a material on angles, can you mention the different angles there are, and what defines them?
Whether yes or no, scroll down to see how well you did or how much you need to know.
1. ACUTE ANGLE
This angle is less than
In the image above, you can see that the line turns less than a right angle to get to the other line, so it must be between and .
2. RIGHT ANGLE
This angle is exactly
3. OBTUSE ANGLE
An obtuse angle is between and
In this example, the angle lies somewhere between and , but seems slightly closer to , so you could estimate this angle to be .
4. ANGLE ON A STRAIGHT LINE
A straight angle or an angle on a straight line is exactly
5. REFLEX ANGLE
This angle is between and
In the image above, notice how the line turns through more than two right angles, but less than three right angles, so is between and .
6. FULL TURN or COMPLETE REVOLUTION
This is exactly .
