# Proportional To Symbol

The proportional-to symbol indicates that one expression changes in proportion to the other. For example, in the definition of an angle measured in radians it can be said that the radius is proportional to arc-length.

In plain language this means that as the radius of the circle grows, the arc-length described by an angle also grows proportionally.
