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.

Convert angle measuring units between sextant (1/6 of turn) and compass points (point) but in the other reverse direction from compass points into sextants.

conversion result for angle:
1 sextant 1/6 of turn = 5.33 compass points point

Converter type: angle units

This online angle from 1/6 of turn into point converter is a handy tool not just for certified or experienced professionals.

First unit: sextant (1/6 of turn) is used for measuring angle.
Second: compass point (point) is unit of angle.

5.33 point is converted to 1 of what?

The compass points unit number 5.33 point converts to 1 1/6 of turn, one sextant. It is the EQUAL angle value of 1 sextant but in the compass points angle unit alternative.

How to convert 2 sextants (1/6 of turn) into compass points (point)? Is there a calculation formula?

First divide the two units variables. Then multiply the result by 2 - for example:
5.3333333333333 * 2 (or divide it by / 0.5)

1 1/6 of turn = ? point

1 1/6 of turn = 5.33 point
