Page 3 - ... generally, Analytical Trigonometry. This subject is a large one, and has close connections with many other branches of modern mathematics. The system of angular measurement now to be described, is sometimes referred to as the theoretical system of measurement. In this system the unit angle is the angle which at the centre of a circle subtends an arc equal in length to the radius. This unit angle is called a radian. Thus, if a circle with any radius be described about 0 as a centre, and an arc...
