Here you can convert the Time unit Minute into the unit Second and vice versa you can convert Second into Minute. By clicking the "Swap units" icon, you will always obtain the desired conversion in the calculation result, i.e., min to s or s to min. With the following calculator you can also calculate any other Time unit.
Info about "Minute"
The minute (min) is not part of the SI International System of Units, but it is approved for use with the SI. The minute is derived from the base unit second. This makes it a legal unit of measurement.
Therefore, 1 minute equals 60 seconds, or 1 second equals 0.0166667 minutes.
After the day had already been divided into 24 units in ancient Egypt, Greek astronomers began 2000 years to divide each of these 24 units into 60 units using the Babylonian sexagesimal system. These 60 units were known as the "diminished part" (Latin: pars minuta), and this led to the term called “minute”. The “minutes” were again subdivided into 60 subunits (i.e., a "second diminished part" (Latin: pars minuta secunda), which in turn is termed "second". Therefore, the minute was defined astronomically as one-60th of an hour, and thus as one-60th of one-24th of a day.
It is now known that the earth's rotation slightly slows down, so the astronomical days always become minimally longer. The basic unit of time (the second) is now measured by atomic clocks, which are more accurate than the astronomical day. Therefore, a leap second must be added every 2 to 5 years in order to synchronise the atomic clocks with the earth's rotation again. As a result, a calendar minute then lasts 61 seconds.
Info about "Second"
The second (s) is the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI). Therefore, the second is the physical unit of time measurement.
All other units of time are derived from the second (e.g., 1 minute = 60 seconds, 1 second = 1,000 milliseconds).
Until the middle of the 20th century, the second was defined as the sixtieth part of a minute of the day divided into 24 hours of 60 minutes. Since the rotation of the earth was assumed to be uniform, the length of a day and that of a second always appeared to be the same. It was not until 1934 that the long-held assumption that the Earth's rotation is not uniform was proven. As a result of magma displacements beneath the Earth's mantle and tidal friction, the Earth's rotation gradually slows down and thus the astronomical length of the day becomes longer. It turned out that the continuously improved quartz clocks provided a more consistent measure of time than the Earth's rotation. For this reason, a leap second is now added every 2 to 5 years to synchronise all clocks with the day, which always becomes a few fractions of a second longer.
Since 1967, the second has been defined as 9,192,631,770 times the period of a microwave, which resonates with a selected transition between two energy levels in the cesium atomic resonance. Therefore, it is called the atomic second Based on this definition. Atomic clocks are based on the exact measurement of this transition, and thus supersede quartz clocks in terms of accuracy.
