Sign to Minutes formula
Minutes = Sign * 1800.0010472
The sign is an angular measurement that is equivalent to 30 degrees or approximately 0.5236 radians. It is commonly used in trigonometry and navigation to express small angles. The sign is derived from the Latin word "signum," meaning mark or indication.
A degree is divided into 60 minutes, with each minute further divided into 60 seconds. Minutes of angular degrees are denoted by the symbol ' (prime). This unit is commonly used in fields such as astronomy and navigation, where precise measurements of angles are crucial. For example, when determining the position of celestial objects, astronomers often use minutes of angular degrees to specify the object's coordinates.
