 German term or phrase: Neuminute/Neusekunde Context: table of SI base units and SI derived units -- For Plane angle, the unit is the radian, whereby 1 rad = 1 m/m Under units no longer applicable after 1-1-78 and their conversion, the chart lists: Neugrad 1 g = 1 gon Neuminute 1' = 1 cgon Neusekunde 1" = 0,1 mgon For Neugrad I found centesimal degree, but I'm not sure if its abbreviated gon or Gon, and I can't find any names for Neuminute and Neusekunde. Thanks in advance for any help!
