Full angle
Definition: An angle whose measure is exactly 360°. A full circle.
Try this
Adjust the angle below by dragging an orange dot and see how the angle ∠ABC behaves.
Note that it is a full angle only when it is exactly 360°
Not widely used. If you continue to increase an angle it will eventually 'double back' on itself and form a full 360° angle. This is the Full Angle.
One could argue that this is the same as a zerosized angle. But we generally mean the reflex angle and so it is a full circle or 360°.
Adjust the angle above and try to create the full angle going around in both directions.
Types of angle
Altogether, there are six types of angle as listed below. Click on an image for a full description of that type and a corresponding interactive applet.
