F = Mgsin

*θ*

Where:

F = force (N)

Mg = gravity (9.81m/s²)

*θ*= angle of inclination (degrees out of 360, or radians?)

The question I have is: what is used to describe the angle of the inclined plane? The SI unit for angles is the radian, but I get the impression that degrees out of 360 are used in the equation above?

I tried to find an example calculation, but I failed to do so. If anyone knows whether radians are used or degrees, please let me know!
