Coordinates of the vertices of a n-sides polygon

Hi everybody,
I have this problem: I need to approximate as closely as possible a polygon with a circle so what I have to do is to draw a polygon with 360 sides where each side forms an angle of 1° with the next one. Then, in a cartesian plane, I need to have the coordinates of each vertice (x,y).
Could you, please, tell me what kind of instructions I have to look for?

Thank you in advance for your time.
