## How to convert degrees to arcseconds (° to arcsec)

The formula for converting degrees to arcseconds is: arcsec = ° × 3600. To calculate the degree value in arcseconds first substitute the degree value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 degree in arcseconds we follow these steps:

arcsec = ° × 3600

arcsec = 1 × 3600

arcsec = 3600

In other words, 1 degree is equal to 3600 arcseconds.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 9 degrees to arcseconds is:

- Understand the conversion formula: arcsec = ° × 3600
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 9 for ° so the formula becomes: arcsec = 9 × 3600
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 9 × 3600 = 32400 arcsec

In summary, 9 degrees is equal to 32400 arcseconds.

## Converting arcseconds to degrees

In order to convert the other way around i.e. arcseconds to degrees, you would use the following formula: ° = arcsec × 0.000277777777777778. To convert arcseconds to degrees first substitute the arcsecond value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 arcsecond in degrees we follow these steps:

° = arcsec × 0.000277777777777778

° = 1 × 0.000277777777777778

° = 0.000277777777777778

Or in other words, 1 arcsecond is equal to 0.000277777777777778 degrees.
