## 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 42 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 42 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

42 min → T(s)

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

T(s) = 42 min × 60 s

T(s) = 2520 s

The final result is:

42 min → 2520 s

We conclude that 42 minutes is equivalent to 2520 seconds:

42 minutes = 2520 seconds

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 second is equal to 0.0003968253968254 × 42 minutes.

Another way is saying that 42 minutes is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0003968253968254 seconds.

## Approximate result

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

42 min ≅ 2520 s

An alternative is also that one second is approximately zero times forty-two minutes.
