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

5 minutes is equal to 300 seconds
