Angles provide a means of expressing the difference in slope between two rays meeting at a vertex without the need to explicitly define the slopes of the two rays.
Since the circumference of a circle is proportional to its radius, and an OC diagram in an angle is a fixed fraction of the circumference, the measure of the OC diagram is independent of the size of the circle.
The angle between a line and a curve (mixed angle) or between two intersecting curves (curvilinear angle) is defined to be the angle between the tangents at the point of intersection.

 Angle [Definition]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Angles provide a means of expressing the difference in slope In mathematics, the slope (or gradient, especially where three or more dimensions are discussed) of a straight line (within a Cartesian coordinate system) is a measure for the "steepness" of said line.
It is defined as the angle subtended at the center of a circle by an arc of circumference equal in length to the radius of the circle.
Central angle A central angle is an angle whose vertex is the center of a circle, and whose sides pass through a pair of points on the circle, thereby subtending an arc between those two points whose angle is (by definition) equal to the central angle itself.

Its application to measuring angles in geometry could possibly be traced to Thales who popularized geometry among the Greeks and lived in western Turkey among people who had dealings with Egypt and Babylon.
In mathematics, angles in degrees are rarely used, as the convenient divisibility of the number 360 is not so important.
For various reasons mathematicians typically prefer to use the radian, an angle corresponding to an arc of a circle whose length equals the circle's radius.

 Angle Summary
To specify its this value, an angle is drawn in a standard position on a coordinate system, with its vertex at the center and one side, called the initial side, along the x axis.
An angle may be measured with a protractor, which is a flat instrument in the shape of a semi-circle.
One radian is defined as the angle created by a counterclockwise rotation of the radius around the circle such that the length of the arc traveled is equal to the length of the radius.

 Wing. Who is Wing? What is Wing? Where is Wing? Definition of Wing. Meaning of Wing.
A wing is a surface used to produce an aerodynamic force normal to the direction of motion by travelling in air or another gaseous media.
The amount of lift produced by a wing increases with the angle of attack (the angle between the onset flow and the chord line) but this relationship ends once the stall angle is reached.
At this angle the airflow starts to separate from the upper surface, and any further increase in angle of attack gives no more lift (it may actually reduce) and gives a large increase in drag.

Anhedral, or a negative wing angle to the horizontal has a destabilising effect.
The wing is at an angle to the airflow, so that the effective flow speed across the wing chord is lower.
At this angle the airflow starts to separate from the upper surface, and any further increase in angle of attack gives no more lift (it will in fact dramatically reduce) and gives a large increase in drag.

The overall effect is that the incoming light is reflected back over a wide range of angles, with the most intense light at an angle of about 40°–42°, regardless of the size of the drop.
Blue light is refracted at a greater angle than red light, but because of the light's total internal reflection from the back of the raindrop, the red light appears higher in the sky, and forms the outer colour of the rainbow.
By measuring the angles that the rays emerged, he concluded that the primary bow was caused by a single internal reflection inside the raindrop and that a secondary bow could be caused by two internal reflections.

All triangles are taken to exist in the Euclidean plane so that the inside angles of each triangle sum to p radians (or 180°); therefore, for a right triangle the two non-right angles are between zero and p/2 radians (or 90°).
2) The cosine of an angle is the ratio of the length of the adjacent side to the length of the hypotenuse.
Radians specify an angle by measuring the length around the path of the unit circle and constitute a special argument to the sine and cosine functions.

The reason for this redundancy is that the notion of similarity used in the vector model considers only the first of our original criteria: closeness to the ambiguous word or query.
The course of action this suggests is disarmingly simple: we should apply the second criterion as well, seeking disambiguating words whose meanings differ as widely as possible from one another.
Disambiguating sets are thus simple to define and easy to generate.

In predicted fire the basic geospatial data of range, angle of sight and azimuth between a fire unit and its target was produced and corrected for variations from the ‘standard conditions’.
It means that each gun fire two or more rounds at different charges and elevation angles, hence different times of flight, timed so that they all land together, although France, logically, defines 'simultaneous' as arriving within a 15 second window.
These methods were joined by radar in World War 2; while this could detect a shell in flight the gun that fired it could not usually be seen and the shell's elliptical trajectory made it impossible to extrapolate backwards.
