4. ## 4 How to calculate the number of seconds present in a year?

Let’s figure out the different units of the measurement of the time involved. To start with the second, the minute, the hour, the day, the month, and the year.

• 1 year equals to 365 days (except the leap year)
• 1 day equals 24 hours
• 1 hour equals 60 minutes
• 1 minute equals 60 seconds

Now we have the conversion; it needs to be multiplied to get the number of seconds. That implies 365x24x60x60, which is equal to 3,15,36,000 seconds, that is more than 31 million seconds.
