So you want to convert 500 gradians into radians? If you're in a rush and just need the answer, the calculator below is all you need. The answer is 7.8539788256731 radians.

## How to convert gradians to radians

We all use different units of measurement every day. Whether you're in a foreign country and need to convert the local imperial units to metric, or you're baking a cake and need to convert to a unit you are more familiar with.

Luckily, converting most units is very, very simple. In this case, all you need to know is that 1 grad is equal to 0.015707957651346 rad.

Once you know what 1 grad is in radians, you can simply multiply 0.015707957651346 by the total gradians you want to calculate.

So for our example here we have 500 gradians. So all we do is multiply 500 by 0.015707957651346:

500 x 0.015707957651346 = 7.8539788256731

## What is the best conversion unit for 500 grad?

As an added little bonus conversion for you, we can also calculate the best unit of measurement for 500 grad.

What is the "best" unit of measurement? To keep it simple, let's say that the best unit of measure is the one that is the lowest possible without going below 1. The reason for this is that the lowest number generally makes it easier to understand the measurement.

For 500 grad the best unit of measurement is radians, and the amount is 7.8539788256731 rad.
