## How to Convert Seconds Of Arc to Radians

To convert a second of arc measurement to a radian measurement, multiply the angle by the conversion ratio. One second of arc is equal to 4.8481E-6 radians, so use this simple formula to convert:

The angle in radians is equal to the seconds of arc multiplied by 4.8481E-6.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 seconds of arc to radians using the formula above.

Seconds of arc and radians 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″.

## Radians

A radian is the measurement of angle equal to the start to the end of an arc divided by the radius of the circle or arc. 1 radian is equal to 180/π, or about 57.29578°. There are about 6.28318 radians in a circle.

The radian is the SI derived unit for angle in the metric system. Radians can be abbreviated as *rad*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as * ^{c}*,

*r*, or

*. For example, 1 radian can be written as 1 rad, 1*

^{R}^{c}, 1 r, or 1

^{R}.

Radians are often expressed using their definition. The formula to find radians is θ = s/r, where the angle in radians θ is equal to the arc length s divided by the radius r. Thus, radians may also be expressed as the formula of arc length over the radius.
