# Full Rotation

### A full rotation is 360 degrees

**This is a "full rotation" or "revolution" or "complete turn" or "full circle"**

It means turning around until you point in the same direction again.

Try it here. RPM means "Revolution Per Minute", how many full rotations every minute:

Other ways of saying it:

- "Doing a
**360**" means spinning around completely once (spinning around twice is a "720"). - "I gave the wheel one
**complete turn**looking for holes" - "It completed one
**cycle**", meaning it went around exactly once. - "It was spinning at 200
**revolutions**per minute" (but people usually say "RPM" instead of "revolutions per minute"). - "She went
**full circle**on liking carrots". So maybe she originally liked carrots, then hated them, now she likes them again.

This image of a protractor shows that a full rotation is 360**°**

And Half a rotation is 180°, called a Straight Angle

And Quarter of a rotation is 90°, called a Right Angle

And a full rotation is also equal to 2π Radians, so here are some equivalent values:
