### What are minute and second

Definition of minute

In terms of angular measurement, a minute (also known as arcminute or minute of arc) is equal to one-sixtieth (1/60) of a degree. This unit of angle is used in fields such as astronomy, navigation, and land surveying. Each degree is divided into 60 minutes, and it can be further subdivided into seconds for an even finer measurement.

Definition of second

A second (also known as arcsecond or second of arc) represents one-sixtieth (1/60) of a minute of arc, or 1/3,600 of a degree. It is a unit of angular measurement that allows for precise calculations in various disciplines, including astronomy, where it helps describe the apparent motion and positions of celestial bodies with great accuracy.

### minute to second Conversion Table

Degrees & Minutes (°') Seconds (")
0° 1' 60"
0° 2' 120"
0° 3' 180"
0° 4' 240"
0° 5' 300"
0° 6' 360"
0° 7' 420"
0° 8' 480"

#### Conversion of minute to second

1° 1' = 60"
1° 2' = 120"

Example 1:
Convert 2° 30' to seconds:
2° 30' = 2 × 60' + 30' = 150' = 150 × 60" = 9000"

Example 2:
Convert 1° 45' to seconds:
1° 45' = 1 × 60' + 45' = 105' = 105 × 60" = 6300"

### History of minute and second

The Degree minute to Degree second Converter has roots in ancient astronomy and navigation. Historically, degrees were divided into minutes and seconds to provide precise measurements of angles and coordinates on celestial bodies and maps.

### Solved Examples °' to °"

Example 1:
Convert 3° 20' to seconds:
3° 20' = 3 × 60' + 20' = 200' = 200 × 60" = 12000"

Example 2:
Convert 4° 15' to seconds:
4° 15' = 4 × 60' + 15' = 255' = 255 × 60" = 15300"
