## How to convert milliseconds to seconds (ms to s)

Converting milliseconds to seconds involves a simple mathematical operation. There are 1000 milliseconds in one second, therefore the formula to calculate how many seconds are in a millisecond (seconds in ms) is: seconds = milliseconds ÷ 1000.This conversion is frequently encountered in computing, physics, and various scientific applications where precise timing is essential. To convert milliseconds to seconds, you divide the number of milliseconds by 1000.## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 200 milliseconds to seconds is:

- Understand the conversion formula: s = ms ÷ 1000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 200 for ms so the formula becomes: s = 200 ÷ 1000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 200 ÷ 1000 = 0.2 s

In summary, 200 milliseconds is equal to 0.2 seconds.

## Converting seconds to milliseconds

In order to convert the other way around i.e. seconds to milliseconds, you would use the following formula: ms = s × 1000. To convert seconds to milliseconds first substitute the second value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 second in milliseconds we follow these steps:

ms = s × 1000

m1 = s × 1000

ms = 1000

Or in other words, 1 second is equal to 1000 milliseconds.
