## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from hours to seconds is 3600, which means that 1 hour is equal to 3600 seconds:

1 hr = 3600 s

To convert 20 hours into seconds we have to multiply 20 by the conversion factor in order to get the time amount from hours to seconds. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 hr → 3600 s

20 hr → T(s)

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

T(s) = 20 hr × 3600 s

T(s) = 72000 s

The final result is:

20 hr → 72000 s

We conclude that 20 hours is equivalent to 72000 seconds:

20 hours = 72000 seconds ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 second is equal to 1.3888888888889E-5 × 20 hours.

Another way is saying that 20 hours is equal to 1 ÷ 1.3888888888889E-5 seconds.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that twenty hours is approximately seventy-two thousand seconds:

20 hr ≅ 72000 s

An alternative is also that one second is approximately zero times twenty hours.
