Back to [Numbers 180-189]

 

[EECS]  180(W, KW or MW) is one of standard numerical values for resistors (of tolerance class 5%). 180pF (picofarads) is one of standard numerical values for capacitors.

 

[Game]  The number of white pieces in the Go game; versus 181 black pieces. Go is called Weichi in China and Baduk in Korea.

 

[Geology]  The 180o East or West meridian (longitude line) designated as the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean, but the Line intentionally wanders around countries, states or islands in order not to divide them into different time zones, as do the time zones’ boundary lines.

 

[Math.]  A half revolution, a straight angle (or a semicircle) is 180o = p radians = 200 grads (grades). (Units for angle measurements).

 

[Math.]  sin(270o) = cos(180o) = tan(135o) = –1.

sin(0o) = sin(180o) = cos(90o) = cos(270o) = tan(0o) = tan(180o) = cot(90o) = cot(270o) = sinh(0) = tanh(0) = log(1) = 0.

 

[Math.]  Sum of 2 supplementary angles is 180o: sin(a) = sin(180oa).

 

[Math.]  tan(a) = tan(180o+a).

 

[Math.]  Interesting formula: arctan1+arctan2+arctan3 = 180o.

 

[Math.] An obtuse angle is greater than 90o, but less than 180o.

A reflex angle is greater than 180o but less than 360o.

 

[Math.]  Sum of 3 internal angles of a triangle (in Euclidean geometry).

 

[Math.]  Sum of 3 internal angles of a triangle is less than 180o in hyperbolic (Lobachevskian) geometry.

 

[Math.]  1803 = 63+73+83+…+693 = 5,832,000.

 

[Measure]  The number of drops in tablespoon.

U.S. customary units for kitchen measurements: ½ pints = 1 cup = 8 fluid ounces = 16 tablespoons = 48 teaspoons = 2880 drops = 236.588 ml.
