What is minute?

Definition:

The minute is a unit of time equal to 60 seconds (1 min = 60 s), the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI). At irregular intervals, the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) time scale is adjusted with leap seconds in order to keep the UTC time scale close to mean solar time. On these occasions, one minute has 59 or 61 seconds.

One minute is also equal to 60,000 milliseconds (ms) (an SI unit of time), or 1/60 hours (h) or 1/1,440 days (d), which are non-SI units of time but accepted for use along with other SI units.

The minutes are commonly used throughout the world for timekeeping. Times of this magnitude (i.e., on the minute time scale) can be measured by using a clock.
