# How many quarters, days, weeks, hours, minutes and seconds are there in one year?

 0 629

How long is one year? Ages, if you ask children waiting for their next birthday, yet just a blink of an eye for seniors. Our feeling of passage of time is subjective but factually, the maths is simple.

An astronomical year, also known as solar year, is the real time in which planet Earth completes a full revolution around the Sun, which takes 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45.51 seconds.

What happens to those spare 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45.51 seconds in our calendars? They are the reason behind the leap years as you can easily notice that they make up a day after 4 years. That is why it has been agreed that every fourth year will be one day longer. In other words, the additional day in a leap year helps us synchronize the actual astronomical year with our simplified calendars.

Have you ever wondered how many hours, minutes, seconds etc. are there in one year? Then here you are:

 Number of: Common year Leap year Quarters 4 4 Days 365 366 Weeks 52 + one day 52 + two days Hours 8.760 8.784 Minutes 525.600 527.040 Seconds 31.536.000 31.622.400

An average human lives 25,915 days (71 years). Live each of them well and make your every single day count.

 Technically Scotland doesn't count because they abolished the use of counties, hence why Inverness shire is not on the list.
