Discover the ease of converting angular measurements from degree seconds to radian minutes using our intuitive tool by Newtum. Get accurate conversions quickly to streamline your calculations.

A Degree second (deg s) is a unit of angular measurement that is equal to 1/3600 of a degree. Since one degree is defined as 1/360 of a rotation, a degree second is therefore 1/1296000 of a full rotation. This unit is commonly used in fields such as astronomy and geophysics, where precise angular measurements are required.

A Radian minute is a less common unit of angular measurement that combines the radian, the standard unit of angular measurement in mathematics, with the minute, a unit of time. Since there are 2*pi radians in a full rotation and 60 minutes in an hour, a radian minute is defined as 1/60 of a radian. It is a unit that can be used for precise scientific calculations requiring both angular and temporal dimensions.

Degree Second (deg s) | Radian Minute (rad min) |
---|---|

30 deg s | 0.145 rad min |

60 deg s | 0.291 rad min |

90 deg s | 0.436 rad min |

120 deg s | 0.582 rad min |

150 deg s | 0.727 rad min |

180 deg s | 0.873 rad min |

210 deg s | 1.018 rad min |

240 deg s | 1.164 rad min |

270 deg s | 1.309 rad min |

300 deg s | 1.455 rad min |

1 deg s = 0.00485 rad min

1 rad min = 206.265 deg s

Example 1:
**

Convert 50 deg s to rad min:

50 deg s = 50 × 0.00485 rad min = 0.2425 rad min

**
Example 2:

Convert 120 deg s to rad min:

120 deg s = 120 × 0.00485 rad min = 0.582 rad min

The Degree second to Radian minute Converter is a modern tool created to facilitate the conversion between two different units of angular measurement. While the concept of degrees has been used since ancient times, the radian measure was introduced much later. This converter simplifies the process of translating between these two systems, which is especially useful in fields such as astronomy, where both units are prevalent.
