The degree measure of the angle is the length of the arc, divided by the circumference of the circle, and multiplied by 360.
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 Recession Glaucoma
Although angle recession glaucoma is uncommon, it may not be readily diagnosed because the onset of symptoms is often delayed.
The risk of eventual progression to glaucoma is generally accepted to be proportionate to the extent of the angle recession, although the presence of angle recession alone is not a good predictor for the occurrence of glaucoma.
In this study, it was found that of eyes with angle recession involving all 360° of the iris, only 8% had glaucoma, and the overall prevalence of glaucoma of eyes with any degree of angle recession was 5.5%.

 Angle Summary
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.
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.
This angle is equal to ninety degrees minus the angle between the intersecting line and the line that goes through the point of intersection and is normal to the plane.

 Seat Tube Angle
The seat tube angle is the included angle between the seat tube and the top tube (assuming that the top tube is level, or the angle between the rear of the seat tube and the ground plane.
A shallow seat tube angle displaces the hips rearward and like longer cranks, tends to restrict the crank RPM’s due to the larger angular change of the femur and results in the need for a shorter top tube length due to a more upright pelvis and lower back.
The actual range of motion will still be the limiting factor as far as spin goes and in no case should the forward displacement of the saddle be greater than the difference between the ideal crank length and the actual length being used.

 angle. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Angles are commonly measured in degrees (°;) or in radians.
An angle less than a right angle is acute, and an angle greater than a right angle is obtuse.
Angles can also be formed by higher–dimensional figures, as by a line and a plane, or by two intersecting planes.

In optics, the angle of incidence is the angle which a ray of light makes with a perpendicular to the surface, or to that point of the surface on which it falls.
The angle of refraction is the angle which a ray of light refracted makes with the surface of the refracting medium; or rather with a perpendicular to that point of the surface on which it falls.
A spherical angle is one made by the meeting of two arches of great circles, which mutually cut one another on the surface of the globe or sphere.

Angle, the WWE champion, who was scheduled to face Brock Lesnar on March 30 in Seattle at Safeco Field, will have major neck surgery and will miss about one year of in-ring time.
Angle's injury wasn't a result of a specific match or move but rather years of taking bumps and landing on his neck.

 Exploratorium: Science Snacks: Critical Angle
Beyond that angle (the critical angle), all the light is reflected back into the water, so the reflected beam is as bright as the incident beam.
The critical angle for water is measured between the beam and a line perpendicular to the surface, and is 49 degrees.
Any light that is not aligned parallel to the axis of the fiber hits the wall of the fiber and is reflected (totally!) back inward,since the angle of incidence with which the light hits the wall is much larger than the critical angle.

 Rainbows - Page 2
As you move the light ray, observe the effect of the incident angle on the dispersion of the red and blue rays as well as the effect of the angle of incidence on the angle of deflection.
The angle at which a light ray strikes a boundary determines the proportion of the ray that is reflected and the proportion that is transmitted.
Rays that strike the rain drop at a small angle of incidence will tend to pass through the drop, and the part of the rays that are reflected inside the drop are spread out relative to one another, while the colors within the rays are not noticeably separated.
