Definition Of Right Angle
What Are The Characteristics Of An Right Angle?
The following are the unique geometric characteristics of any
An angle is created when two
The intersection of the two rays is called the
There is a standard method of labeling any Angle. First label the vertex; we choose to label it
. The two rays are labeled
of the Right Angle between two rays is determined by the space between the rays. See diagram below. One ray is horizontal thus giving us a reference point. The distance of separation between
Rays Z and C
determines the angle's value.
Is there a standard way of writing an angle as a mathematical expression? The answer is yes. Here are the details: (1) All angles must start with the
character. (2) The vertex must be the center label when writing an angle. (3) Valid right angle statements in this example are
A Right Angle is exactly 90 degrees. A "half square" symbol, red in the diagram, is how we show a right angle.
