## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from hours to minutes is 60, which means that 1 hour is equal to 60 minutes:

1 hr = 60 min

To convert 2 hours into minutes we have to multiply 2 by the conversion factor in order to get the time amount from hours to minutes. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 hr → 60 min

2 hr → T(min)

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

T(min) = 2 hr × 60 min

T(min) = 120 min

The final result is:

2 hr → 120 min

We conclude that 2 hours is equivalent to 120 minutes:

2 hours = 120 minutes

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 minute is equal to 0.0083333333333333 × 2 hours.

Another way is saying that 2 hours is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0083333333333333 minutes.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that two hours is approximately one hundred twenty minutes:

2 hr ≅ 120 min

An alternative is also that one minute is approximately zero point zero zero eight times two hours.
