Convert Sextants to:
Sextants to Angular Mils
- 1 Angular Mil equals exactly 2π/6400 radians. Radians (rad) are the SI unit for measuring a plane angle.
Sextants to Arcminutes
- 1 Arcminute (Minute of Arc - MOA) is equal to exatly one 60th of a degree. In terms of the SI unit radians this is π/10800 or approximately 0.290 888 x 10-3 rad.
Sextants to Arcseconds
- 1 Arcsecond is equal to exactly one thirtysix-hundredth arc degrees (1°/3600). In terms of radians (SI unit) this is π/648000 rad or approximately 4.848 137 x 10-6 rad.
Sextants to Binary Degrees
- 1 Binary degree or binary radian (brad) is 1 turn/256. In terms of the SI unit radians this is π/128 rad.
Sextants to Centesimal minutes of arc
- 1 Centesimal minute of arc is defined as one one-hundredth of a gradian (1 grad/100). In SI terms this is 2π/400000 radians or approximately 0.157 080 x 10-3 rad.
Sextants to Centesimal seconds of arc
- 1 centesimal second of arc is defined as one ten-thousandths of a gradian (1 grad/10000). In SI units this is 2π/4000000 radians or approximately 1.570 796 x 10-6 rad.
Sextants to Centiturns
- 1 Centiturn is exactly 1 turn/100 or 3.6° (degrees of arc). In terms of the SI unit radians this is π/50 radians.
Sextants to Degrees
- 1 degree of arc is define as 1/360 of a revolution. In SI units 1° is π/180 radians.
Sextants to Diameter Parts
- 1 Diameter Part is defined as 1/60 radians (SI unit).
Sextants to Gradians
- 1 gradian is exactly 1/400 of a revolution or 2π/400 or 0.9°. In terms of the SI unit radians 1 grad is approximately 15.707 963 x 10-3 rad.
