## Recipe Objective

How to convert numpy's datetime64 object to datetime's datetime object? This is also possible in Numpy by using the datetime function, we are going to convert the dates into seconds, minutes and hours. So lets understand this with practical implementation.

## Step 1 - Import libraries

``` import numpy as np from datetime import datetime ```

## Step 2 - Take Sample date data

``` Sample_date = datetime.utcnow() format_datetime_64 = np.datetime64(Sample_date) print("This is the Sample date:", format_datetime_64) ```
`This is the Sample date: 2020-12-30T10:45:05.103693`

Here in the above for Sample date we have taken the current date function, and extracted the current date. And then we have converted that date into datetime64 format for further operations.

## Step 3 - Convert into Seconds

``` Convert_seconds = (format_datetime_64 - np.datetime64("2000-12-30T10:41:47.427944")) / np.timedelta64(1, "s") print("This is datetime64 format", format_datetime_64,"\n") print("This is Converted into Seconds format:", Convert_seconds) ```
```This is datetime64 format 2020-12-30T10:45:05.103693

This is Converted into Seconds format: 631152197.675749```

## Step 4 - Convert into Minutes

``` Convert_minutes = (format_datetime_64 - np.datetime64("2000-12-30T10:41:47.427944")) / np.timedelta64(1, "m") print("This is datetime64 format", format_datetime_64,"\n") print("This is Converted into Minutes format:", Convert_minutes) ```
```This is datetime64 format 2020-12-30T10:45:05.103693

This is Converted into Minutes format: 10519203.294595817```

## Step 5 - Convert into hours

``` Convert_hours = (format_datetime_64 - np.datetime64("2000-12-30T10:41:47.427944")) / np.timedelta64(1, "h") print("This is datetime64 format", format_datetime_64,"\n") print("This is Converted into Hours format:", Convert_hours) ```
```This is datetime64 format 2020-12-30T10:45:05.103693

This is Converted into Hours format: 175320.05490993027```
