## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a microscope's fine adjustment is set to 30 arc seconds for detailed observation.

Convert this angle from seconds to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in seconds is:

Angle_{(Seconds)} = 30

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Seconds)} / 40500

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Seconds)} = 30** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 30 / 40500

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 0.00074074074

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 "** is equal to **0.00074074074 compass point**.

The angle is **0.00074074074 compass point**, in compass points.

### Consider that a telescope's alignment needs to be within 20 arc seconds for accurate tracking.

Convert this angle from seconds to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in seconds is:

Angle_{(Seconds)} = 20

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Seconds)} / 40500

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Seconds)} = 20** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 20 / 40500

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 0.00049382716

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **20 "** is equal to **0.00049382716 compass point**.

The angle is **0.00049382716 compass point**, in compass points.

## Seconds

Seconds of arc, often simply called arcseconds, are a further subdivision of minutes of arc, with 60 seconds in one minute. This small unit is used for extremely precise angular measurements, such as those needed in astronomy, optics, and surveying, where even minute differences in angle can be significant.

## 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.
