## 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 5.8 hours into seconds we have to multiply 5.8 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

5.8 hr → T_{(s)}

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

T_{(s)} = 5.8 hr × 3600 s

T_{(s)} = 20880 s

The final result is:

5.8 hr → 20880 s

We conclude that **5.8 hours is equivalent to 20880 seconds**:

5.8 hours = 20880 seconds
