Expert Answer:

I assume the given equation
 
E = P × T
 
E represents energy , P represent power  and  T represent time
 
SI unit of energy :- Joule ( J )
 
SI unit of Power :- Watt ( W )
 
SI unit of time :- Second  (s )
 
Hence,  Watt × second = Joule
 
if we consider, Watt × hour = watt × 3600 second = 3600 Joule
 
Conclusion :-
In SI units time should be in seconds always . If time is to be considered as minutes , hours or any other thing in calculation ,
then  it should be converted into seconds
