**Sign**

**Sign**is a unit in the category of

*Angle*. It is also known as signs. Sign has a dimension of a. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit rad by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.5235987756.

Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Angle include Arc Minute (minute of Arc) ('), Arc Second (second of Arc) ("), Circumference, Degree (°), Gon (gr), Grade (gr), Hour of Arc, Milliradian (mrad), Percent (%), Quadrant (angle), Radian (rad), and Revolution (rev).
