(Last Updated On: 2024-04-01)

Discover the ease of converting angular measurements from seconds to right angles with Newtum's intuitive 's to RA' tool, designed to simplify your calculations and pique your curiosity.

### What are Second and RightAngle

Definition of Second

In the context of angular measurements, a 'second' is a unit of angle in the sexagesimal system, which divides a degree into 60 minutes and each minute into 60 seconds. This system is historically based on the Babylonian's base 60 numbering system. One second of angle is thus 1/3600 of a degree.

Definition of RightAngle

A right angle is an angle of exactly 90 degrees, signifying a quarter turn, which is a quarter of a full rotation. This angle is significant in various fields such as geometry, trigonometry, and many practical applications, where it's often symbolized by a square at the angle's vertex.

### Second to RightAngle Conversion Table

Second (s) Right Angle (RA)
15 s 0.00104 RA
30 s 0.00208 RA
45 s 0.00313 RA
60 s 0.00417 RA
75 s 0.00521 RA
90 s 0.00625 RA
105 s 0.00729 RA
120 s 0.00833 RA
135 s 0.00938 RA
150 s 0.01042 RA

#### Conversion of Second to RightAngle

1 s = 0.000277778 RA
1 RA = 3600 s

Example 1:
convert 180 s to RA:
180 s = 180 Ã— 0.000277778 RA = 0.05 RA

Example 2:
convert 300 s to RA:
300 s = 300 Ã— 0.000277778 RA = 0.08333 RA
