To get the minute of the hour component of the Period, use the period.minute property. At first, import the required libraries −

import pandas as pd

The pandas.Period represents a period of time. Creating two Period objects

period1 = pd.Period("2020-09-23 05:55:30")
period2 = pd.Period(freq="T", year = 2021, month = 7, day = 16, hour = 2, minute = 35)

Display the Period objects

print("Period1...\n", period1)
print("Period2...\n", period2)

Get the minute of the hour from two Period objects

res1 = period1.minute
res2 = period2.minute

## Example

Following is the code

import pandas as pd

# The pandas.Period represents a period of time
# creating two Period objects
period1 = pd.Period("2020-09-23 05:55:30")
period2 = pd.Period(freq="T", year = 2021, month = 7, day = 16, hour = 2, minute = 35)

# display the Period objects
print("Period1...\n", period1)
print("Period2...\n", period2)

# get the minute of the hour from two Period objects
res1 = period1.minute
res2 = period2.minute

# Return the minute of the hour from the two Period objects
print("\nMinute of the hour from the 1st Period object ...\n", res1)
print("\nMinute of the hour from the 2nd Period object...\n", res2)

## Output

This will produce the following code

Period1...
2020-09-23 05:55:30
Period2...
2021-07-16 02:35

Minute of the hour from the 1st Period object ...
55

Minute of the hour from the 2nd Period object...
35
