Discover the ease of converting gradians to seconds with Newtum's precise Grad to Second Converter. This tool is a must-have for professionals and students alike.

A grad, also known as a gon or grade, is a unit of measure for angles used in some geometric applications. One grad equates to 1/400 of a full circle, meaning a right angle would be 100 grads. This system divides a circle into 400 units, providing a direct correlation with metric measurements which simplifies calculations in various engineering and mathematical contexts.

A second, also known as an arcsecond, is a unit of angular measurement equivalent to 1/3600th of a degree. In precise applications like astronomy, surveying, and optics, seconds are used to describe small angles with great accuracy. This unit is crucial for achieving the high level of precision required in fields that deal with minute angular measurements.

Grad (g) | Second (s) |
---|---|

1 g | 324000 s |

2 g | 648000 s |

3 g | 972000 s |

4 g | 1296000 s |

5 g | 1620000 s |

6 g | 1944000 s |

7 g | 2268000 s |

8 g | 2592000 s |

9 g | 2916000 s |

10 g | 3240000 s |

1 g = 324000 s

1 s = 1/324000 g

**
Example 1:
**

convert 2 g to s:

2 g = 2 Ã— 324000 s = 648000 s

**
Example 2:
**

convert 5.5 g to s:

5.5 g = 5.5 Ã— 324000 s = 1782000 s
