Multiply that by 60 to get 11.71785 seconds. Is it possible that you are inadvertently telling your calculator to convert 1.4865... _minutes_ into HMS notation? Then it would show [0 hours], 1 minute, 29 seconds, and 0.195... seconds. Good Hunting!
The first thing you should do is work in the smallest unit  in your case seconds  and then work back to minutes and hours. So, how many seconds in an hour? 60x60. Now take 1.486588292 of those seconds and convert into minutes (with some seconds left over) and then convert the minutes into hours (with some minutes left over) and you're done. Penny
