Definition: An angle whose measure is exactly 360°. A full circle.

Try this
Adjust the angle below by dragging an orange dot and see how the angle ∠ABC behaves.
Note that it is a full angle only when it is exactly 360°

Not widely used. If you continue to increase an angle it will eventually 'double back' on itself and form a full 360° angle. This is the Full Angle. One could argue that this is the same as a zero-sized angle. But we generally mean the reflex angle and so it is a full circle or 360°. Adjust the angle above and try to create the full angle going around in both directions.

Acute angle Less than 90° |
Right angle Exactly 90° |
Obtuse angle Between 90° and 180° |

Straight angle Exactly 180° |
Reflex angle Between 180° and 360° |
Full angle Exactly 360° |
