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

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Degrees)} / 11.25

To convert any given angle from degrees to compass points, substitute the given value of Angle_{(Degrees)} in the above formula, simplify the right-hand side value.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a solar panel is tilted at an angle of 45 degrees for optimal sunlight exposure.

Convert this angle from degrees to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle of solar panel in degrees is:

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 45

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Degrees)} / 11.25

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight of solar panel, **Angle _{(Degrees)} = 45** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 45 / 11.25

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 4

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **45 °** is equal to **4 compass point**.

The angle of solar panel is **4 compass point**, in compass points.

### Consider that a camera tripod allows for a 30-degree adjustment to capture the perfect shot.

Convert this angle from degrees to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle of camera tripod in degrees is:

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 30

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Degrees)} / 11.25

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight of camera tripod, **Angle _{(Degrees)} = 30** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 30 / 11.25

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 2.6667

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 °** is equal to **2.6667 compass point**.

The angle of camera tripod is **2.6667 compass point**, in compass points.

## Degrees

Degrees are a widely used unit of angular measurement, especially in geometry, trigonometry, and everyday applications. A full circle is divided into 360 degrees, with each degree further divided into 60 minutes and each minute into 60 seconds. Degrees offer an intuitive way to express angles, and they are prevalent in fields ranging from navigation to astronomy, as well as in common day-to-day measurements.

## 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.
