3 minutes and 21 seconds to seconds


3 minutes 21 seconds equals 201 seconds


How to convert 3m 21s to seconds?

In order to convert 3 minutes and 21 seconds to seconds we need to take the minutes part and transform it into seconds. We know that 1 minute equals 60 seconds. Therefore to get the number of minutes in seconds we need to multiply the amount of minutes by 60. In this case we have to multiply 3 minutes by 60:

3m × 60s = 180 seconds

Now we have to add both amount of seconds to get the final result:

180s + 21s = 201 seconds

Finally we can say that 3 min 21 sec is equivalent to 201 seconds:

3 minutes and 21 seconds = 201 seconds

Three minutes and twenty-one seconds is equal to two hundred one seconds.

Units definitions

The units involved in this conversion are minutes, seconds and seconds. This is how they are defined:


The second (symbol: s, also abbreviated: sec) is the unit of time in the International System of Units (SI), historically defined as 1⁄86400 of a day – this factor derived from the division of the day first into 24 hours, then to 60 minutes and finally to 60 seconds each (24 × 60 × 60 = 86400).


The minute is a unit of time usually equal to 1⁄60 (the first sexagesimal fraction) of an hour, or 60 seconds. In the UTC time standard, a minute on rare occasions has 61 seconds, a consequence of leap seconds (there is a provision to insert a negative leap second, which would result in a 59-second minute, but this has never happened in more than 40 years under this system). Although not an SI unit, the minute is accepted for use with SI units. The SI symbol for minute or minutes is min (without a dot).
