## 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 5 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 5 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

5 min → T(s)

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

T(s) = 5 min × 60 s

T(s) = 300 s

The final result is:

5 min → 300 s

We conclude that 5 minutes is equivalent to 300 seconds:

5 minutes = 300 seconds ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 second is equal to 0.0033333333333333 × 5 minutes.

Another way is saying that 5 minutes is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0033333333333333 seconds.

## Approximate result

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

5 min ≅ 300 s

An alternative is also that one second is approximately zero point zero zero three times five minutes.
