# Convert degree / minute to degree / second

Learn how to convert 1 degree / minute to degree / second step by step.

## Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{degree}{minute}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{degree}{second}\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left(\dfrac{radian}{second}\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{degree}{minute}\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{1.08 \times 10^{4}}\left(\dfrac{radian}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{1.08 \times 10^{4}}\left(\dfrac{rad}{s}\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(\dfrac{degree}{second}\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}\left(\dfrac{radian}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}\left(\dfrac{rad}{s}\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{degree}{minute}\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(\dfrac{degree}{second}\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{1.08 \times 10^{4}}} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{radian}{second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{radian}{second}\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{1.08 \times 10^{4}}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{rad}{s}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{rad}{s}\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \dfrac{π}{1.08 \times 10^{4}}} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{rad}{s}\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \dfrac{π}{180.0}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{rad}{s}\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$\dfrac{π}{1.08 \times 10^{4}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{π}{180.0}$$
Cancel factors on both sides
$$\text{Cancel factors}$$
$$\dfrac{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{π}}}{1.08 \times 10^{4}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{π}}}{180.0}$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{1.0}{180.0} = \dfrac{1.0}{1.08 \times 10^{4}}$$
Isolate $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Multiply both sides by $$\left(\dfrac{180.0}{1.0}\right)$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{1.0}{180.0} \times \dfrac{180.0}{1.0} = \dfrac{1.0}{1.08 \times 10^{4}} \times \dfrac{180.0}{1.0}$$
$$\text{Cancel}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times \dfrac{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{1.0}} \times {\color{rgb(99,194,222)} \cancel{180.0}}}{{\color{rgb(99,194,222)} \cancel{180.0}} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{1.0}}} = \dfrac{{\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{1.0}} \times 180.0}{1.08 \times 10^{4} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{1.0}}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{180.0}{1.08 \times 10^{4}}$$
Rewrite equation
$$\dfrac{1.0}{10^{4}}\text{ can be rewritten to }10^{-4}$$
$$\text{Rewrite}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = \dfrac{10^{-4} \times 180.0}{1.08}$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\approx0.0166666667\approx1.6667 \times 10^{-2}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(\dfrac{degree}{minute}\right)\approx{\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 1.6667 \times 10^{-2}}\left(\dfrac{degree}{second}\right)$$
