360 degree circle gets debunked!!
Why Does a Circle Have 360 Degrees?
I was recently wondering why a circle has been divided in to degrees. When I asked my physics teacher he could not think of an answer. His guess is that it probably has to do with people long ago using the base 6 number system. I have a small inkling that it has to do with easy conversion or usage with radians or grads. Any help provided would be extremly helpful. Thank you for your time. The Babylonians used a base 60 number system not base 6.
Where do the degrees of a circle come from? When did this way of divvying up a circle become common practice? Who made this choice? And why? Keep on reading to find out.
Thus the circle came to have degrees. Each degree corresponds to the shift in the earth's position relative to the sun each day.
