How to Convert Minutes Of Arc to Seconds Of Arc

Protractors are often used to measure angle

To convert a minute of arc measurement to a second of arc measurement, multiply the angle by the conversion ratio. One minute of arc is equal to 60 seconds of arc, so use this simple formula to convert:

seconds of arc = minutes of arc × 60

The angle in seconds of arc is equal to the minutes of arc multiplied by 60.

For example, here's how to convert 5 minutes of arc to seconds of arc using the formula above.
5' = (5 × 60) = 300"
