Journal Entry:

Change the value of the ∠alpha and vary the length of the radius then observe:

What changes and what remains the same? What kind of relationship is between the arc and radius?

The constant relationship arc/raduis is the measure in of the ∠alpha.

Therefore if the circumference of unit radius is considered the measure of an angle in radians coincides with the length of the corresponding arc.
