Curious about angle conversions? Explore our Minute to Gon Converter, expertly crafted by Newtum, and transform angle units with ease!

A minute is a unit of angle measurement that is equal to 1/60th of a degree. In precise terms, it represents a sixtieth of a degree of a circle. Each degree is divided into 60 minutes, and each minute can be further divided into 60 seconds. This unit of measure is very useful in fields that require high precision such as astronomy, navigation, and surveying.

A gon, also known as a grad or grade, is a unit of angular measurement in which a full circle is divided into 400 units. As such, one gon represents 1/400th of a circle. This metric system, though less common than degrees, is particularly used in fields like civil engineering, land surveying, and navigation because of its compatibility with decimal-based measurements.

Minute | Gon |
---|---|

1 min | 0.0167 gon |

5 min | 0.0833 gon |

10 min | 0.1667 gon |

15 min | 0.2500 gon |

20 min | 0.3333 gon |

30 min | 0.5000 gon |

45 min | 0.7500 gon |

60 min | 1.0000 gon |

90 min | 1.5000 gon |

120 min | 2.0000 gon |

**
Example 1:
**

Convert 30 min to gon:

30 min = 30 × (1/60) gon = 0.5 gon

**
Example 2:
**

Convert 45 min to gon:

45 min = 45 × (1/60) gon = 0.75 gon
