Java Program to Convert Milliseconds to Minutes and Seconds

Java Program to Convert Milliseconds to Minutes and Seconds

In the above program, you'll learn to convert milliseconds to minutes and seconds individually, and together in Java.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of the following Java programming topics:


Example 1: Convert milliseconds to minutes and seconds individually

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;

public class Milliseconds {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        long milliseconds = 1000000;

        // long minutes = (milliseconds / 1000) / 60;
        long minutes = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toMinutes(milliseconds);

        // long seconds = (milliseconds / 1000);
        long seconds = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toSeconds(milliseconds);

        System.out.format("%d Milliseconds = %d minutes\n", milliseconds, minutes );
        System.out.println("Or");
        System.out.format("%d Milliseconds = %d seconds", milliseconds, seconds );

    }
}

Output

1000000 Milliseconds = 16 minutes
Or
1000000 Milliseconds = 1000 seconds

In the above program, we've converted given milliseconds to minutes using toMinutes() method. Likewise, we used toSeconds() method to convert it to seconds.

We can also use basic math to convert it to minutes and seconds.

Seconds = Milliseconds / 1000

while minutes is

Minutes = Seconds / 60
or
Minutes = (Milliseconds / 1000) / 60

Example 2: Convert Milliseconds to Minutes and Seconds

public class Milliseconds {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        long milliseconds = 1000000;

        long minutes = (milliseconds / 1000) / 60;
        long seconds = (milliseconds / 1000) % 60;

        System.out.format("%d Milliseconds = %d minutes and %d seconds.", milliseconds, minutes, seconds);

    }
}

Output

1000000 Milliseconds = 16 minutes and 40 seconds.

In the above program, we've used formula:

Minutes = (Milliseconds / 1000) / 60
And
Remaining Seconds = (Milliseconds / 1000) % 60

First, we calculate the minutes by simply dividing it to seconds and then to minutes by dividing it with 60.

Then, we calculate the remaining seconds by dividing it to seconds and getting the remainder when divided by 60.
