How to Convert Seconds Of Arc to Gradians

Protractors are often used to measure angle

To convert a second of arc measurement to a gradian measurement, multiply the angle by the conversion ratio. One second of arc is equal to 0.000309 gradians, so use this simple formula to convert:

gradians = seconds of arc × 0.000309

The angle in gradians is equal to the seconds of arc multiplied by 0.000309.

For example, here's how to convert 5 seconds of arc to gradians using the formula above.
5" = (5 × 0.000309) = 0.001543g

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

Seconds Of Arc

The second of arc is a unit of angle equal to 1/60th of one minute of arc or 1/3,600 of one degree.

A second of arc is sometimes also referred to as an arc second or arcsecond. Seconds of arc can be abbreviated as arcsec, and are also sometimes abbreviated as asec. For example, 1 second of arc can be written as 1 arcsec or 1 asec.

The second of arc is most commonly expressed using a double prime (″), though a double quote is often used as well. For example, 1 second of arc is most often written as 1″.


A gradian is equal to 1/400 of a revolution or circle, or 9/10°. This unit simplifies the measurements of right angles, as 90° is equal to 100 gradians.

A gradian is sometimes also referred to as a grad, gon, or grade. Gradians can be abbreviated as g, and are also sometimes abbreviated as gr or grd. For example, 1 gradian can be written as 1g, 1 gr, or 1 grd.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
