## What is the Formula to convert Diameter Parts to Compass Points?

The formula to convert given angle from Diameter Parts to Compass Points is:

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Diameter Parts)} × 360 / (376.991 × 11.25)

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

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a mechanical watch's gear rotates by 12 diameter parts.

Convert this rotation from diameter parts to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in diameter parts is:

Angle_{(Diameter Parts)} = 12

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from diameter parts to compass points is:

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Diameter Parts)} × 360 / (376.991 × 11.25)

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Diameter Parts)} = 12** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 12 × 360 / (376.991 × 11.25)

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 1.0186

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **12 diameter part** is equal to **1.0186 compass point**.

The angle is **1.0186 compass point**, in compass points.

### Consider that a precision tool rotates by 16 diameter parts for accurate measurements.

Convert this rotation from diameter parts to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in diameter parts is:

Angle_{(Diameter Parts)} = 16

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from diameter parts to compass points is:

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Diameter Parts)} × 360 / (376.991 × 11.25)

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Diameter Parts)} = 16** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 16 × 360 / (376.991 × 11.25)

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 1.3581

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **16 diameter part** is equal to **1.3581 compass point**.

The angle is **1.3581 compass point**, in compass points.

## Diameter Parts

Diameter parts are a less common unit of angular measurement, historically used to describe angles in terms of the fractional parts of a circle's diameter. This unit was more prevalent in classical geometry and certain types of mechanical design, where direct relationships between linear measurements and angles were essential.

## 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.
