In the above figure, ÐAOB is a right angle. In this case, we say that the arms OA and OB are perpendicular to each. Therefore, ÐAOB shown in adjoining figure is 90°. So, ÐAOB is a right angle. E-mail Address First Name Then
3. Obtuse Angle: An angle whose measure is greater than 90° but less than 180° is called an obtuse angle.

ÐDOQ shown in the above figure is an obtuse angle.
4. Straight Angle: An angle whose measure is 180° is called a straight angle.
ÐXOY shown in the above figure is a straight angle. A straight angle is equal to two right angles.
5. Reflex Angle: An angle whose measure is more than 180° but less than 360° is called a reflex angle.
ÐAOB shown in the above figure is 210°. So, ÐAOB is a reflex angle.
6. Zero Angle: An angle measure 0° is called a zero angle.
When two arms of an angle lie on each other, 0° angle is formed.
Comparision of Angles An angle whose degree measure is greater than the degree measure of another angle is a greater angle. Thus, we can say that: Acute Angle < Right Angle < Obtuse Angle < Straight Angle < Reflex Angle.
