# 4842 minutes in seconds

## Result

4842 minutes equals 290520 seconds

## Conversion formula

Multiply the amount of minutes by the conversion factor to get the result in seconds:

4842 min × 60 = 290520 s

## How to convert 4842 minutes to seconds?

The conversion factor from minutes to seconds is 60, which means that 1 minutes is equal to 60 seconds:

1 min = 60 s

To convert 4842 minutes into seconds we have to multiply 4842 by the conversion factor in order to get the amount from minutes to seconds. We can also form a proportion to calculate the result:

1 min → 60 s

4842 min → T(s)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the time T in seconds:

T(s) = 4842 min × 60 s

T(s) = 290520 s

The final result is:

4842 min → 290520 s

We conclude that 4842 minutes is equivalent to 290520 seconds:

4842 minutes = 290520 seconds

## Result approximation:

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. In this case four thousand eight hundred forty-two minutes is approximately two hundred ninety thousand five hundred twenty seconds:

4842 minutes ≅ 290520 seconds

## Units definitions

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

### Minutes

The minute is a unit of time or of angle. As a unit of time, the minute (symbol: min) is 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). As a unit of angle, the minute of arc is equal to 1⁄60 of a degree, or 60 seconds (of arc). Although not an SI unit for either time or angle, the minute is accepted for use with SI units for both. The SI symbols for minute or minutes are min for time measurement, and the prime symbol after a number, e.g. 5′, for angle measurement. The prime is also sometimes used informally to denote minutes of time. In contrast to the hour, the minute (and the second) does not have a clear historical background. What is traceable only is that it started being recorded in the Middle Ages due to the ability of construction of "precision" timepieces (mechanical and water clocks). However, no consistent records of the origin for the division as 1⁄60 part of the hour (and the second 1⁄60 of the minute) have ever been found, despite many speculations.

### Seconds

The second (symbol: s) (abbreviated s or sec) is the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI). It is qualitatively defined as the second division of the hour by sixty, the first division by sixty being the minute. The SI definition of second is "the duration of 9 192 631 770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom". Seconds may be measured using a mechanical, electrical or an atomic clock. SI prefixes are combined with the word second to denote subdivisions of the second, e.g., the millisecond (one thousandth of a second), the microsecond (one millionth of a second), and the nanosecond (one billionth of a second). Though SI prefixes may also be used to form multiples of the second such as kilosecond (one thousand seconds), such units are rarely used in practice. The more common larger non-SI units of time are not formed by powers of ten; instead, the second is multiplied by 60 to form a minute, which is multiplied by 60 to form an hour, which is multiplied by 24 to form a day. The second is also the base unit of time in other systems of measurement: the centimetre–gram–second, metre–kilogram–second, metre–tonne–second, and foot–pound–second systems of units.
