## How many Arcseconds are in a Sextant?

The answer is one Sextant is equal to 216000 Arcseconds and that means we can also write it as 1 Sextant = 216000 Arcseconds. Feel free to use our online unit conversion calculator to convert the unit from Sextant to Arcsecond. Just simply enter value 1 in Sextant and see the result in Arcsecond.

## How to Convert Sextant to Arcsecond (sextant to arcsec)

By using our Sextant to Arcsecond conversion tool, you know that one Sextant is equivalent to 216000 Arcsecond. Hence, to convert Sextant to Arcsecond, we just need to multiply the number by 216000. We are going to use very simple Sextant to Arcsecond conversion formula for that. Pleas see the calculation example given below.

$$\text{1 Sextant} = 1 \times 216000 = \text{216000 Arcseconds}$$

## What is Sextant Unit of Measure?

A sextant helps in measuring angular distance between 2 visible objects. It is basically a doubly reflecting navigation instrument. It is primarily used for the measurement of angle between astronomical object and horizon.

## What is the symbol of Sextant?

The symbol of Sextant is sextant. This means you can also write one Sextant as 1 sextant.

## What is Arcsecond Unit of Measure?

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.

## What is the symbol of Arcsecond?

The symbol of Arcsecond is arcsec. This means you can also write one Arcsecond as 1 arcsec.
