## Angles

This calculator is based on conversion of two angle units. An angle consists of two rays (as in sides of an angle sharing a common vertex or else called the endpoint.) Some belong to rotation measurements - spherical angles measured by arcs' lengths, pointing from the center, plus the radius. For a whole set of multiple units of angle on one page, try that Multiunit converter tool which has built in all angle unit-variations. Page with individual angle units.

### One sextant of angle converted to compass point equals to 5.33 point

How many compass points of angle are in 1 sextant? The answer is: The change of 1 1/6 of turn ( sextant ) unit of angle measure equals = to 5.33 point ( compass point ) as the equivalent measure for the same angle type.

In principle with any measuring task, switched on professional people always ensure, and their success depends on, they get the most precise conversion results everywhere and every-time. Not only whenever possible, it's always so. Often having only a good idea ( or more ideas ) might not be perfect nor good enough solution. If there is an exact known measure in 1/6 of turn - sextants for angle amount, the rule is that the sextant number gets converted into point - compass points or any other angle unit absolutely exactly.
