Antonym means the opposite. So the opposite of angle is a straight line.

The answer depends on the context. In the context of a curve, a tangent is a straight line that touches the line without intersecting it. The antonym does not have a specific name because it could be a straight line that does not meet the curve at all, or it could be one that crosses the curve. Note that even a tangent can cross the curve at some other [distant] point(s).

The length (distance) of a straight line always changes, the angle of a straight line is 180 degrees.

The trajectory of the motion is a straight line.

A straight line has an infinite number of angles, each angle of eactly 360o, or 0o. An line with an angle of 180o looks like a straight line, but technically it is not a straight line, since the line folds back upon itself.
