Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's not time, it's just the same sort of terminology. a degree can be divided into 60 parts called "minutes", and each minute can be divided into 60 seconds.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it's very much like time, but it is just a way of dividing up degrees.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its not really time here,,its the revolution , like i revolution = 360 degrees, and measurements with minutes and seconds are subdivisions of degrees having nothing to do with time. The names are due to the fact that 1/60th was chosen as the standard, so there are sixty minutes in a degree and sixty seconds in a minute, just like on a clock.
