# How many seconds in a year? How many minutes and days per year

To find out how many seconds in a year, you need to either add and multiply, or just multiply a lot. In the first case, you need to look at each time of the year and calculate how many time meters there are, then add all the obtained indicators to an integer (which we are actually looking for), in the second - apply the knowledge obtained in kindergarten and multiply On the right figures. In order to more fully reveal the topic, we will select the first item, that is, consider how many in a year, minutes and seconds not just in general, but in each season separately (winter, spring, summer and autumn). This way is more long and boring, so those who wish can immediately flip through the article to the end, where a simpler way of finding out the information of interest is set out.

In addition to the number of seconds, it will be superfluous to mention how many minutes a year it is, since it is just as important - as well as days. And anyway, information about how much time in a year is useful and can be useful to everyone. Yes, remembering complicated six- and eight-digit numbers can be difficult, but the number of months, days, hours and days in each other is quite possible to remember.

So, for starters, some background information:

• In one year 12 months. This is a fact, which every time remains completely unchanged, unlike the next paragraph.
• In one year 365 days. The only exception is a leap day, when the days are slightly longer: 366. True, it happens relatively rarely: every four years. Nevertheless, this fact spoils the picture a little, because you have to count the seconds separately in the usual and separately in a leap year.
• In one day 24 hours. Always. Regardless of the year and date, the day always contains no more, no less than 24 hours. Yes, sometimes it seems to people that time is not enough, but this is a completely different story, and it has purely psychological reasons.
• In one hour 60 minutes. Just like a day or months, the clock does not depend on whether the leap year is a year or not.
• In one minute 60 seconds.

That's all, in fact, thanks to this information you can already find out how many seconds per year. But let's start the "analysis of flights".

## Spring

March . The first spring month contains:

• Number of nights: 31.
• The number of hours: 744.
• The number of minutes: 44 640.
• Number of seconds: 2 678 400.

April

• Number of nights: 30.
• The number of hours: 720.
• The number of minutes: 43 200.
• Number of seconds: 2 592 000.

May

• Number of nights: 31.
• The number of hours: 744.
• The number of minutes: 44640.
• Number of seconds: 2 678 400.

Addition: 2 678 400 + 2 592 000 + 2 678 400.

The result in seconds: 7,948,800.

## Summer

June. Summer comes, the first month of which contains:

• Number of nights: 30.
• The number of hours: 720.
• The number of minutes: 43 200.
• Number of seconds: 2 592 000.

July

• Number of nights: 31.
• The number of hours: 744.
• The number of minutes: 44 640.
• Number of seconds: 2 678 400.

August

• Number of nights: 31.
• The number of hours: 744.
• The number of minutes: 44 640.
• Number of seconds: 2 678 400.
• Addition: 2 592 000 + 2 678 400 + 2 678 400.
• The result in seconds: 7,948,800.

## Autumn

September. Carries this month in itself:

• Number of nights: 30.
• The number of hours: 720.
• The number of minutes: 43 200.
• Number of seconds: 2 592 000.

October

• Number of nights: 31.
• The number of hours: 744.
• The number of minutes: 44 640.
• Number of seconds: 2 678 400.

November

• Number of nights: 30.
• The number of hours: 720.
• The number of minutes: 43 200.
• Number of seconds: 2 592 000.

Addition: 2 592 000 + 2 678 400 + 2 592 000.

The result in seconds: 7 862 400.

## Winter. Leap and non-leap years

A leap year is an event that occurs every four years at the end of winter. 11 months pass the same way as always, but not February. He is deprived of days (unlike his "comrades," he does not have 30 or 31 days, but only 28), and with the help of a leap year he can feel a little closer to his "relatives", because it was during this period of days In February 29. It does not much exceed the usual amount, moreover, it still falls short of other months, but in the least this last winter month nevertheless approaches the coveted figure of 30. True, it will never grow to it.

Well, when we sorted out the leap years, we can start the usual calculation.

December. Winter comes and last month before next year. It carries in itself:

• Number of nights: 31.
• The number of hours: 744.
• Number of minutes: 44 640.
• Number of seconds: 2 678 400.

January

• Number of nights: 31.
• The number of hours: 744.
• Number of minutes: 44 640.
• Number of seconds: 2 678 400.

Non-leased February:

• Number of nights: 28.
• Hours: 672.
• Minutes: 40 320.
• Seconds: 2 419 200.

Addition: 2 678 400 + 2 678 400 + 2 419 200.

The result in seconds: 7,776,000.

Leap Year February:

• Number of nights: 29.
• Hours: 696.
• Minutes: 41,760.
• Seconds: 2 505 600.

Addition: 2 678 400 + 2 678 400 + 2 505 600.

The result in seconds: 7 862 400.

So we counted all the weeks, days, hours, minutes. Now you can give a specific answer to the question of how many seconds in a year.

In the non-leap year:

• 12 months.
• 52 full weeks.
• 365 days.
• 8760 hours.
• 525,600 minutes.
• 31,536,000 seconds.

In a leap year:

• 12 months.
• 52 full weeks.
• 366 days.
• 8784 hours.
• 527,040 minutes.
• 31,622,400 seconds.

That's all. How did we find out how many seconds of the year? In fact, everything is very simple. Officially, we counted the number of spring, summer, autumn and winter seconds, and then folded them. However, there is also the same easy and simple method mentioned in the beginning of the article: 365 days x 24 hours x 60 minutes x 60 seconds. In the case of a leap year, change 365 to 366 and do the same, that is, multiply the day by the hour, minutes and seconds. As a result, the same results as above are obtained. If you have a calculator, this method does not allow you to memorize large numbers, but simply and quickly counts the seconds when this or that situation requires it. However, those who have a good memory, can remember all the necessary numbers.
