Time and distance are not the same "units" and cannot be converted.

(unless you are Han Solo)

See this

Angle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But what I suspect you mean is 6 degrees, 15 min, 10 secs if so

$\displaystyle 1 min =\frac{1}{60}degree \\\ 1 sec = \frac{1}{3600}degree$

so we get

$\displaystyle 6+\frac{15}{60}+\frac{10}{3600} \approx 6.23278^\circ$

Good luck. (Rock)
