segundos

Explanation:
Arc-minute (arcmin): In geometry the degree can be divided into sixty subsections called arcmins, in the same way that there are sixty minutes in an hour. The arcmin can be divided into arcsecs in the same way. A value can be quoted as 43°26'45.8" to mean 43 degrees, 26 arcmins and 45.8 arcsecs. Note that for values below one arcsec a metric decimal place is used.

Arc-second (arcsec): See arc-minute
