# Arcseconds to Degrees Converter

The angular measure of an object is usually measured in terms of degrees, arcminutes or arcseconds. The angular measurements are used mainly in astronomy, to determine the apparent object size and distance between the objects in space. We know that 1 degree is equal to 3600 arc seconds. Hence, we can derive that 1 Arcsecond of a plane angle is approximately equal to 0.000277778 degrees. You can easily convert arcseconds to degrees using this online calculator.

The angular measure of an object is usually measured in terms of degrees, arcminutes or arcseconds. The angular measurements are used mainly in astronomy, to determine the apparent object size and distance between the objects in space. We know that 1 degree is equal to 3600 arc seconds. Hence, we can derive that 1 Arcsecond of a plane angle is approximately equal to 0.000277778 degrees. You can easily convert arcseconds to degrees using this online calculator.

#### Formula:

Degree = Arc Second * 0.000277778

1 degree = 1Â° = 1/360 of a circle
1 arcminute = 1' = 1/60 of a degree
1 arcsecond = 1' = 1/60 of an arcminute = 1/3600 of a degree

#### Example

To convert 45 arcseconds into degrees, we can multiply it with 0.000277778.
Deg = 45 x 0.000277778
Deg = 0.01250001 degrees.
