### What are Degree second and Radian minute

Definition of Degree second

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.
