How to Convert Minutes of Arc to Revolutions

To convert a measurement in minutes of arc to a measurement in revolutions, divide the angle by the following conversion ratio: 21,600 minutes of arc/revolution.

Since one revolution is equal to 21,600 minutes of arc, you can use this simple formula to convert:

revolutions = minutes of arc ÷ 21,600

The angle in revolutions is equal to the angle in minutes of arc divided by 21,600.

For example, here's how to convert 50,000 minutes of arc to revolutions using the formula above.
revolutions = (50,000' ÷ 21,600) = 2.314815 r

Minutes of arc and revolutions are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Minute of Arc?

The minute of arc is a unit of angle equal to 1/60th of one degree, or 1/21,600 of a circle. The minute of arc is also equal to π/10,800 radians.

A minute of arc is sometimes also referred to as an arc minute, arcminute, or minute arc. Minutes of arc can be abbreviated as arcmin, and are also sometimes abbreviated as MOA or amin. For example, 1 minute of arc can be written as 1 arcmin, 1 MOA, or 1 amin.
