How to Convert Degrees to Mils Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Protractors are often used to measure angle

Convert degrees to mils with this simple formula:

mils = degrees × 17.777778

Converting a degree angle measurement to a mil measurement involves multiplying your angle by the conversion ratio to find the result. A degree is equal to 17.777778 mils, so to convert simply multiply by 17.777778.

For example:
5° = (5 × 17.777778) = 88.888889 mil

Degrees and mils are both units used to measure angle. Learn more about angle and find more angle measurement conversion calculators. A degree is an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as °, for example 1°. A mil is an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as mil, for example 1 mil.

Degrees can also be expressed using minutes and seconds as an alternative to using the decimal form. Minutes and seconds are expressed using the prime (′) and double-prime (″) characters, although a single-quote (') and double-quote (") are often used for convenience.

One minute is equal to 1/60th of a degree and one second is equal to 1/60th of a minute.

There are 360 degrees in a revolution, or circle. 360 has 24 divisors, and is easily divided by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 24, 30, 36, 40, 45, 60, 72, 90, 120 and 180. This makes it a fairly easy number to work with. There are also 360 days in the Persian calendar year, and many theorize that early astronomers used 1 degree per day.

Protractors are commonly used to measure angles in degrees. They are semi-circle or full-circle devices with degree markings allowing a user to measure an angle in degrees. Learn more about how to use a protractor or download a printable protractor.

A mil, short for milliradian, is equal to 1/1000 of a radian. There are 6283 in a full revolution/circle. The mil is commonly used to measure adjustment of sights and scopes of firearms.
