## Examples

This hour to seconds time converter tool works flawlessly, but it’s always a good idea to learn a little mathematics so that your work won’t be halted if you are unable to access the tool for some reason.

Two examples that have been solved below will walk you through the process of manually converting hours to seconds.

Example :

1. Convert 3 hours to seconds.

Solution :

The relationship between various time units has been studied, and we now know that one hour is equivalent to 60 minutes and 1 minute is equivalent to 60 seconds.

1 hour = 60 minutes
1 minute = 60 seconds

From the above time relation,

1 minute = 60 seconds
60 minutes = ? seconds
60 minute = 60 × 60 = 3600 seconds

Therefore, to convert the number of hours to seconds, we will use the formula above.

Seconds = Hours × 3600
Seconds = 3 × 3600
Seconds = 10800 seconds.

3 Hours = 10800 Seconds.

Example :

2. Convert 1.5 hrs 35 min to minutes.

Solution :

1 hour = 60 minutes
1 minute = 60 seconds

From the above time relation,

1 minute = 60 seconds
60 minutes = ? seconds
60 minute = 60 × 60 = 3600 seconds

Therefore, to convert the number of hours to seconds, we will use the formula above.

Seconds = Hours × 3600
Seconds = 1.5 × 3600
Seconds = 5400 seconds.

1.5 Hours = 5400 Seconds.
