### What are Second and Quadrant

Definition of Second

A 'second' is a unit of time that is universally recognized as 1/60th of a minute. Despite its ubiquity in everyday life, the precise definition is based on the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium 133 atom.

A 'quadrant' is a term that has several definitions depending on context. In geometry, it refers to one of four sections of a coordinate plane, divided by the x and y axes. Historically, in navigation, a quadrant is a quarter of a circle or 90 degrees, representing a quarter of the earth's circumference.
