A goniometer is an instrument for angle measurement or drawing. It has a moving arm that can be rotated to a precise angular position.

The body the goniometer shown above has two protractors placed on it. The moving arm is attached to the center of the body by a fulcrum and rotates freely counterclockwise or clockwise around it.

You can think of the arms and center of the base of a goniometer as the components of an angle.
