### Decimal Precision

Conversion from one to ten decimal places

• 1 s = 0.02 min
• 1 s = 0.017 min
• 1 s = 0.0167 min
• 1 s = 0.01667 min
• 1 s = 0.016667 min
• 1 s = 0.0166667 min
• 1 s = 0.01666667 min
• 1 s = 0.016666667 min
• 1 s = 0.0166666667 min
• 1 s = 0.01666666667 min

## Seconds to minutes conversion factor and formulas

Formula

The conversion factor between seconds and minutes is 60. This represents the ratio of seconds per one minute. To calculate the value in minutes, we can either divide by the conversion factor or multiply by its inverse.

### Division

To convert from seconds to minutes, divide seconds by 60.
The formula is expressed as:
s ÷ 60 = min

### Multiplication

Alternatively we can multiply by the inverse conversion factor to get the same result.
The inverse of 60 is 1/60 or 0.017. To convert from seconds to minutes, multiply seconds by 0.017.
The formula is expressed as:
s × 0.017 = min

A conversion from seconds to minutes are units within in the metric (SI) or SI compatible systems.

SI Unit

The second is a base measure of time in the SI and Imperial systems of measurement. Its definition is based on the frequency of a caesium-133 atom. The formal scientific definition is "the fixed numerical value of the caesium frequency ΔνCs, the unperturbed ground-state hyperfine transition frequency of the caesium-133 atom, to be 9 192 631 770 when expressed in the unit Hz, which is equal to s-1". In common terms a second is 1/60th of a minute or 1/86,400th of a day.

SI Unit

A minute is a unit of time measurement equivalent to sixty seconds or 1/60th of an hour. The minute is not officially part of the SI system, however it is fully compatible with and commonly used when performing both metric and Imperial measurements.
