Learn How to Convert Mils to Degrees Using our Conversion Formula

Converting a mil angle measurement to a degree measurement involves multiplying your angle by the conversion ratio to find the result. A mil is equal to 0.05625 degrees, so to convert simply multiply by 0.05625.

For example, 5mil = (5 × 0.05625) = 0.28125°.

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

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.
