How to Convert Time to Seconds
To convert a time to just seconds, you can use this simple formula. It’s useful for converting a time or duration in HH:MM:SS form to the total number of seconds:
total seconds = (hours × 3600) + (minutes × 60) + seconds
For example, let’s convert 3:45:30 to the total number of seconds.
seconds = (3 × 3600) + (45 × 60) + 30
seconds = 10,800 + 2,700 + 30
seconds = 13,530
Thus, 3:45:30 is equivalent to a total of 13,530 seconds.
