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

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

Angle_{(Seconds)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 216000

Substitute the given value of angle in sextants, i.e., Angle_{(Sextants)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the angle in seconds, i.e., Angle_{(Seconds)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that an old navigation tool, the sextant, measures angles in 6 sextants.

Convert this measurement from sextants to Seconds.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 6

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to seconds is:

Angle_{(Seconds)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 216000

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Sextants)} = 6** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Seconds)} = 6 × 216000

Angle_{(Seconds)} = 1296000

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **6 sextant** is equal to **1296000 "**.

The angle is **1296000 "**, in seconds.

### Consider that an astronomer divides the night sky into 2 sextants for observation.

Convert this division from sextants to Seconds.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 2

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to seconds is:

Angle_{(Seconds)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 216000

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Sextants)} = 2** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Seconds)} = 2 × 216000

Angle_{(Seconds)} = 432000

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **2 sextant** is equal to **432000 "**.

The angle is **432000 "**, in seconds.

## 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.

## 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.
