# Hours to Seconds Converter

Hours to seconds converter is the tool that helps you **convert hours into seconds**. We often need to break down quantities into smaller numbers. For instance, most of us measure speeds in `kilometers per hour`

and `miles per hour`

, but we also use *I'll be there in a second*. We need both seconds and hours based on the gravity of the situation. But how much is a second compared to an hour?

This calculator and the accompanying article focus on that fundamental unit of time, i.e., the second. Read on to understand how to convert hours to seconds.

## How to convert hours to seconds

There are `3600`

seconds in an hour. Inversing this relation, we have:

You can multiply the number of hours by `3600`

to convert hours into seconds. To use this converter:

- Enter the
**number of hours**, e.g., 13 hours. - The converter takes
**hours and returns seconds**as:

### How many hours are equal to one second?

A second amounts to (`1 / 3600`

)th of an hour, i.e., 0.000277778 hour is equal to one second. We have that because an hour has 60 minutes, and a minute has 60 seconds. In equation form: 1 second = `1 / (60 × 60)`

hours.

### How do I convert 1 hour in seconds?

To convert `1`

hour to seconds:

**Multiply**the hours by`60`

to convert it to minutes, i.e.,`1 hr × 60 =`

.`60 minutes`

**Multiply**the minutes by`60`

to obtain the number of seconds, i.e.,`60 minutes × 60 =`

.`3600 seconds`

### How many seconds are equal to 14 hours?

`14`

hours is equal to `50400`

seconds. `60`

seconds make up a minute, and `60`

minutes equals an hour. Therefore, `14`

hours = `14 × 60 × 60 =`

** 50400 seconds**.
