Syntax : Period.start_time



Parameters : None

Return : Timestamp object

Example #1: Use Period.start_time attribute to find the start time for the given Period object.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Period object
prd = pd.Period(freq ='S', year = 2000, month = 2, day = 22,
                         hour = 8, minute = 21, second = 24)
  
# Print the Period object
print(prd)

Output :

Now we will use the Period.start_time attribute to find the start time for prd object.




# return the start time
prd.start_time

Output :



As we can see in the output, the Period.start_time attribute has returned a Timestamp object which contains the date value as well as the start time of the given period object.

Example #2: Use Period.start_time attribute to find the start time for the given Period object.

               hour = 15, minute = 49, second = 17)
  
# Print the object
print(prd)

Output :

Now we will use the Period.start_time attribute to find the start time for prd object.




# return the start time
prd.start_time

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Period.start_time attribute has returned a Timestamp object which contains the date value as well as the start time of the given period object.
