## What is the Formula to convert Degrees to Sextants?

The formula to convert given angle from Degrees to Sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = Angle_{(Degrees)} / 60

To convert any given angle from degrees to sextants, 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 Sextants.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle of solar panel in degrees is:

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 45

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from degrees to sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = Angle_{(Degrees)} / 60

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 45 / 60

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 0.75

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **45 °** is equal to **0.75 sextant**.

The angle of solar panel is **0.75 sextant**, in sextants.

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

Convert this angle from degrees to Sextants.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle of camera tripod in degrees is:

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 30

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from degrees to sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = Angle_{(Degrees)} / 60

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 30 / 60

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 0.5

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 °** is equal to **0.5 sextant**.

The angle of camera tripod is **0.5 sextant**, in sextants.

## 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.

## Sextants

Sextants are a unit of angular measurement used primarily in navigation and astronomy, representing one-sixth of a full circle, or 60 degrees. The sextant instrument, named after this unit, is used to measure the angle between two visible objects, such as a star and the horizon, enabling precise determination of latitude and longitude at sea.
