How to Convert Seconds of Arc to Gradians
To convert a measurement in seconds of arc to a measurement in gradians, divide the angle by the following conversion ratio: 3,240 seconds of arc/gradian.
Since one gradian is equal to 3,240 seconds of arc, you can use this simple formula to convert:
gradians = seconds of arc ÷ 3,240
The angle in gradians is equal to the angle in seconds of arc divided by 3,240.
Seconds of arc and gradians are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Is a Second of Arc?
