The answer is one Degree is equal to 3600 Arcseconds. Feel free to use our online unit conversion calculator to convert the unit from Degree to Arcsecond. Just simply enter value 1 in Agate Line and see the result in Arcsecond.
By using our Degree to Arcsecond conversion tool, you know that one Degree is equivalent to 3600 Arcsecond. Hence, to convert Degree to Arcsecond, we just need to multiply the number by 3600. We are going to use very simple Degree to Arcsecond conversion formula for that. Pleas see the calculation example given below.
Convert 1 Degree to Arcsecond ⇒ 1 Degree = 1 × 3600 = 3600 Arcsecond
Degree is a unit of measurement of plane angle. One full rotation is considered as 360 degrees. The degree is also referred as degree of arc, arcdegree or arcdegree. The specific reason of choosing degree as a unit of rotations and angles is pretty unclear, but as per historical facts, 360 is approximately the number of days in a year.
The symbol of Degree is deg. This means you can also write one Degree as 1 deg.
Arcsec also known as arc second or second arc is a unit of angular measurement. One second of arc is equal to 1/60 of an arcminute, 1/3600 of a degree, 1/296000 of a turn. That means one full circle will have 1296000 arcseconds. Similar to arcmin, arcsec was originated in Babylonian astronomy as sexagesimal subdivisions of the degree. It is primarily used in fields where most of the work involves working with small angles such as optometry, ophthalmology, and astronomy. In astronomy related work, it is used for comparison of angular diameter of Moon, Sun, and planets. Apart from that, it is also used in cartography and navigation.
The symbol of Arcsecond is arcsec. This means you can also write one Arcsecond as 1 arcsec.
