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 1 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 1 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

1 min → T(s)

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

T(s) = 1 min × 60 s

T(s) = 60 s

The final result is:

1 min → 60 s

We conclude that 1 minutes is equivalent to 60 seconds:

1 minutes = 60 seconds
