## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from minutes to seconds is 60, which means that 1 minute is equal to 60 seconds:

1 min = 60 s

To convert 0.5 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 0.5 by the conversion factor in order to get the time amount from minutes to seconds. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 min → 60 s

0.5 min → T(s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the time T in seconds:

T(s) = 0.5 min × 60 s

T(s) = 30 s

The final result is:

0.5 min → 30 s

We conclude that 0.5 minutes is equivalent to 30 seconds:

0.5 minutes = 30 seconds

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 second is equal to 0.033333333333333 × 0.5 minutes.

Another way is saying that 0.5 minutes is equal to 1 ÷ 0.033333333333333 seconds.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that zero point five minutes is approximately thirty seconds:

0.5 min ≅ 30 s

An alternative is also that one second is approximately zero point zero three three times zero point five minutes.
