## What is the Formula to convert Compass Points to Minutes?

The formula to convert given angle from Compass Points to Minutes is:

Angle_{(Minutes)} = Angle_{(Compass Points)} × 675

Substitute the given value of angle in compass points, i.e., Angle_{(Compass Points)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the angle in minutes, i.e., Angle_{(Minutes)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a ship's navigation system shifts by 8 compass points to adjust its course.

Convert this direction from compass points to Minutes.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in compass points is:

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 8

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from compass points to minutes is:

Angle_{(Minutes)} = Angle_{(Compass Points)} × 675

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Compass Points)} = 8** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Minutes)} = 8 × 675

Angle_{(Minutes)} = 5400

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **8 compass point** is equal to **5400 '**.

The angle is **5400 '**, in minutes.

### Consider that a hiker adjusts their direction by 4 compass points to stay on track.

Convert this direction from compass points to Minutes.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in compass points is:

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 4

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from compass points to minutes is:

Angle_{(Minutes)} = Angle_{(Compass Points)} × 675

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Compass Points)} = 4** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Minutes)} = 4 × 675

Angle_{(Minutes)} = 2700

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **4 compass point** is equal to **2700 '**.

The angle is **2700 '**, in minutes.

## Compass Points

Compass points are a unit of angular measurement used in navigation and cartography to represent directions on a compass. Traditionally, the compass is divided into 32 points, each representing 11.25 degrees. Compass points are essential in maritime navigation, aviation, and orienteering, providing a simple and standardized way to describe directions.

## Minutes

Minutes of arc are a finer subdivision of degrees, with 60 minutes making up one degree. Each minute is further divided into 60 seconds of arc. This unit allows for precise angular measurements and is commonly used in fields like astronomy, navigation, and geodesy, where detailed accuracy is required for mapping and celestial observations.
