## 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 9.8 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 9.8 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

9.8 min → T(s)

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

T(s) = 9.8 min × 60 s

T(s) = 588 s

The final result is:

9.8 min → 588 s

We conclude that 9.8 minutes is equivalent to 588 seconds:

9.8 minutes = 588 seconds

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 second is equal to 0.0017006802721088 × 9.8 minutes.

Another way is saying that 9.8 minutes is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0017006802721088 seconds.

## Approximate result

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

9.8 min ≅ 588 s

An alternative is also that one second is approximately zero point zero zero two times nine point eight minutes.
