### What are Minute and RightAngle

Definition of Minute

A minute, often abbreviated as 'min', is a unit of angle measurement equal to 1/60th of a degree. In other words, one degree is divided into 60 equal parts, each being a minute. It's a finer subdivision used for precise measurements in fields like astronomy, navigation, and surveying.

Definition of RightAngle

A right angle is a fundamental concept in geometry, signifying an angle of exactly 90 degrees. It is the angle generated when two straight lines intersect perpendicularly to each other. This type of angle is ubiquitous in various mathematical contexts and is a building block for many geometric shapes.

### Minute to RightAngle Conversion Table

Minutes Right Angles
1 min 0.0167 RA
2 min 0.0333 RA
3 min 0.0500 RA
4 min 0.0667 RA
5 min 0.0833 RA
6 min 0.1000 RA
7 min 0.1167 RA
8 min 0.1333 RA
9 min 0.1500 RA
10 min 0.1667 RA

#### Conversion of Minute to RightAngle

1 min = 0.0167 RA
1 RA = 60 min

Example 1:
Convert 45 min to RA:
45 min = 45 Ã— 0.0167 RA = 0.7500 RA

Example 2:
Convert 30 min to RA:
30 min = 30 Ã— 0.0167 RA = 0.5000 RA

### History of Minute and RightAngle

The concept of dividing an hour into 60 minutes has ancient origins, tracing back to the Babylonians, who used a sexagesimal (base-60) numbering system. The application of minutes to measure angles also hails from this system. The Minute to Right Angle Converter is a modern tool that simplifies this ancient practice of angle measurement for today's needs.
