How to Perform Major Conversions Involving Time Measures

The formulas for conversion are shown below:

Minutes to Seconds

seconds = minutes * 60


Example: 5 minutes in seconds:

seconds = minutes * 60

seconds = 5 * 60

seconds = 300



Seconds to Minutes

minutes = seconds / 60


Example: 400 seconds in minutes:

minutes = seconds / 60

minutes = 540 / 60

minutes = 9



Minutes to Hours

hours = minutes / 60


Example: 360 minutes in hours:

hours = minutes / 60

hours = 360 / 60

hours = 6



Hours to minutes

minutes = hours * 60


Example: 7 hours for minutes:

minutes = hours * 60

minutes = 7 * 60

minutes = 420



Hours to seconds

seconds = hours * 3600


Example: 10 hours for seconds:

seconds = hours * 3600

seconds = 10 * 3600

seconds = 36000



Seconds to Hours

hours = seconds / 3600

hours = seconds * 3600

hours = 3600 / 3600

hours = 1
