Other units of angle

While the radian (DimensionfulAngles.radᵃ) and the degree (DimensionfulAngles.°ᵃ) should cover must use cases, there are many other units of angle. Based on this table and UnitfulAngles.jl, the following units are also provided:

The documentation for these are found in Syntax.

Astronomical units

In astronomy it is common to measure angles in prefixed arcseconds with the symbol for arcsecond as, i.e., milliarcsecond is mas. DimensionfulAngles.jl provides this alternate, prefixable, version of the arcsecond.

The prefixed units are documented in Prefixed units.

Another set of units of angle used in astronomy is the hour, minutes, and seconds. Note that these are minutes and seconds of hour, not degree (e.g., like the arcsecond). The hour is defined as $1/24$ of a full revolution. These are usually displayed as, e.g. 10ʰ 5ᵐ 13.2ˢ (see Display).

Note

minutes/seconds of a degree are distinct from minutes/seconds of an hour.

Display

Most of the time we want to express an angle in a single unit. However, in some fields it is common to express them in a sexagesimal system. Dimensionful.jl provides the function show_sexagesimal to display an angle in two different sexagesimal systems. The function sexagesimal returns these values rather than displaying them.

For most units, a space is inserted between the value and the unit, which is the default behavior from Unitful.jl. For the following units, this space is removed (e.g., 10° not 10 °):

  • °
  • ʰ
  • ˢ
