Arctan produces a number in radians. What exactly is radians? I was expecting degrees instead and i pop until i found out that atan result was in radians.

It did solve mine! Now i know... 1 rad=360 degrees, whatever this would mean...

Instead of dividing the circle into 360 degrees, we divide it into Radians.

So half a circle (180 degrees) = 0,5 radians.

Is just so easy.
