Methodology

Each hour is divided into 60 minutes, each of which is further sub-divided into 60 seconds.

hh:mm:ss to decimal hour conversion

dh = hh + mm/60 + ss/3600

Decimal hour to hh:mm:ss conversion

hh = ⌊dh⌋
mm = ⌊(dh - hh) * 60⌋
ss = ((dh - hh) * 60 - mm) * 60
where,
dh = decimal hour
hh = hours
mm = minutes
ss = seconds
