A 'second' is a unit of time, universally recognized as 1/60th of a minute or 1/86,400th of a day. Historically, it was defined based on the Earth's rotation cycle but is now established by the cesium-133 atomic standard. Seconds measure moments, coordinate world clocks, and serve as a fundamental base in physics for defining other time-related units.

A 'radian' is a unit of angular measurement equivalent to the angle created at the center of a circle by an arc whose length is equal to the radius of the circle. It is the standard unit of angular measure used in many areas of mathematics. One radian is approximately 57.2958 degrees. There are 2π radians in a complete circle.

Seconds (s) | Radians (rad) |
---|---|

1 s | 0.000004848 rad |

5 s | 0.00002424 rad |

10 s | 0.00004848 rad |

15 s | 0.00007272 rad |

20 s | 0.00009696 rad |

30 s | 0.00014544 rad |

40 s | 0.00019392 rad |

50 s | 0.0002424 rad |

60 s | 0.00029088 rad |

70 s | 0.00033936 rad |

1 s = 0.000004848 rad

1 rad = 206,265 s

**
Example 1:
**

convert 60 s to rad:

60 s = 60 × 0.000004848 rad ≈ 0.00029088 rad

**
Example 2:
**

convert 120 s to rad:

120 s = 120 × 0.000004848 rad ≈ 0.00058176 rad

Example 1:
**
To convert 30 seconds to radians, use the conversion factor (1 s = 0.000004848 rad):

30 s = 30 × 0.000004848 rad ≈ 0.00014544 rad.

**
Example 2:
**
To convert 300 seconds to radians, apply the same factor:

300 s = 300 × 0.000004848 rad ≈ 0.0014544 rad.
