Converting Character Time to Numeric Time

I have a dataset where the time column values are written as a character phrase.

Example: "1 hour and 20 minutes"

I want to make the time machine readable for different calculations. How do I change "1 hour and 20 minutes" to "80"?

Thank you!

You can use lubridate package to do that.
Using hm function and then as.numeric as shown below.

f1<-"1 hour and 20 minutes"
as.numeric(hm(f1), "minutes")
#> [1] 80
