The answer is one Sextant is equal to 3600 Arcmins. Feel free to use our online unit conversion calculator to convert the unit from Sextant to Arcmin. Just simply enter value 1 in Agate Line and see the result in Arcmin.
By using our Sextant to Arcmin conversion tool, you know that one Sextant is equivalent to 3600 Arcmin. Hence, to convert Sextant to Arcmin, we just need to multiply the number by 3600. We are going to use very simple Sextant to Arcmin conversion formula for that. Pleas see the calculation example given below.
Convert 1 Sextant to Arcmin ⇒ 1 Sextant = 1 × 3600 = 3600 Arcmin
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.
The symbol of Sextant is sextant. This means you can also write one Sextant as 1 sextant.
Arcmin also known as arc minute or minute arc is a unit of angular measurement. One minute of arc is equal to 1/21600 of a turn. That means one full circle will have 21600 arcminutes. This unit 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 Arcmin is arcmin. This means you can also write one Arcmin as 1 arcmin.
