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

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

Angle_{(Turns)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} / 6

To convert any given angle from sextants to turns, substitute the given value of Angle_{(Sextants)} in the above formula, simplify the right-hand side value.

## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this measurement from sextants to Turns.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 6

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to turns is:

Angle_{(Turns)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} / 6

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Turns)} = 6 / 6

Angle_{(Turns)} = 1

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **6 sextant** is equal to **1 turn**.

The angle is **1 turn**, in turns.

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

Convert this division from sextants to Turns.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 2

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to turns is:

Angle_{(Turns)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} / 6

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Turns)} = 2 / 6

Angle_{(Turns)} = 0.3333

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **2 sextant** is equal to **0.3333 turn**.

The angle is **0.3333 turn**, in turns.

## 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.

## Turns

A turn, also known as a revolution or full circle, represents a complete rotation around a central point and is equal to 360 degrees or 2π radians. Turns are used in various disciplines, including engineering, navigation, and geometry, to describe full rotations. The concept of turns is deeply rooted in both mathematical theory and practical applications, such as in the design of gears and wheels.
