How to Convert 87 Arcseconds to Degrees (arcsec to deg)
By using our Arcsecond to Degree conversion tool, you know that one Arcsecond is equivalent to 0.00027777777777778 Degree. Hence, to convert Arcsecond to Degree, we just need to multiply the number by 0.00027777777777778. We are going to use very simple Arcsecond to Degree conversion formula for that. Pleas see the calculation example given below.
Convert 87 Arcsecond to Degree ⇒ 87 Arcsecond = 87 × 0.00027777777777778 = 0.024166666666667 Degree
What is Arcsecond Unit of Measure?
Arcsec also known as arc second or second arc is a unit of angular measurement. One second of arc is equal to 1/60 of an arcminute, 1/3600 of a degree, 1/296000 of a turn. That means one full circle will have 1296000 arcseconds. Similar to arcmin, arcsec was originated in Babylonian astronomy as sexagesimal subdivisions of the degree. It is primarily used in fields where most of the work involves working with small angles such as optometry, ophthalmology, and astronomy. In astronomy related work, it is used for comparison of angular diameter of Moon, Sun, and planets. Apart from that, it is also used in cartography and navigation.
What is the symbol of Arcsecond?
The symbol of Arcsecond is arcsec which means you can also write it as 87 arcsec.
What is Degree Unit of Measure?
Degree is a unit of measurement of plane angle. One full rotation is considered as 360 degrees. The degree is also referred as degree of arc, arcdegree or arcdegree. The specific reason of choosing degree as a unit of rotations and angles is pretty unclear, but as per historical facts, 360 is approximately the number of days in a year.
What is the symbol of Degree?
The symbol of Degree is deg which means you can also write it as 87 deg.
