A formula that changes degrees to radians is:  radians / pi  =  degrees / 180

                                                           --->         radians / pi  =  81 / 180

                                                           --->         radians / pi  =  0.45

       multiplying by pi                           --->              radians  =  0.45┬Ěpi

 

The radian measure of an arc is independent from the radius of the circle.

You would use the radius of the circle to find the length (in inches, centimeters, etc.) of the arc.
