Unit of measure of duration that is equal to 60 seconds.

The minute is not a unit of measure in the International System of Units (SI).


The symbol for minute is “min” and is read as “minute.”
The use of the prime ( ‘ ) as a symbol for a minute is incorrect, since this symbolism is reserved for a minute in an arc, a subdivision of a degree of an arc. The same thing is true for the double prime ( ‘ ‘ ), which is reserved for a second of an arc.


  • One minute is equal to 60 seconds and we write: 1 min = 60 s.
  • One hour is equal to 60 minutes and we write: 1 h = 60 min.
  • 1 day is equal to 1440 minutes
