606024*365 = 31 536 000 however Google claims that it"s actually : 31 556 926 seconds.http://www.google.com/search?q=1+year+in+secondsAnd Wolfram Alpha ring up : http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=1+year+in+SecondsLeap years FTW!

likewise note the 1 month in work is 30.4368499.There just isn"t a good way to convert in between labels for certain periods of time and also units for measuring the passing of time. The trouble is the language and also common consumption don"t make much of a difference between the two. If you ask people how long a work is, they"ll tell friend 24 hours. Also Google will tell friend that, but it isn"t true. A day is normally 24 hours. DST and also leap seconds deserve to both change the size of a day though. So a day isn"t a unit for measuring time in ~ all. It"s a name for a certain period of time. Leap seconds can also mess through terms the seem bulletproof choose "hour" or "minute". As soon as there"s a leap second, one minute of the year i do not care 61 seconds, and the corresponding hour becomes 3601 seconds.The just unit that time you can reliably job-related with is the second (and metric derivations thereof, like millisecond).

distinction is in reality 20,926. Leap year account because that 21,600. There is quiet 326 seconds to find.I yes, really wonder just how google counts them.

It"s be cause a year is about 365.24 days. That means every 4 year we include a day, yet that in reality overcompensates, so every hundred years or so us skip a leap year:Years that are evenly divisible by 100 space not leap years, unless they are also evenly divisible by 400, in which instance they room leap years.<1><2> for example, 1600 and also 2000 were leap years, but 1700, 1800 and 1900 were not. Similarly, 2100, 2200, 2300, 2500, 2600, 2700, 2900 and 3000 will not be leap years, yet 2400 and 2800 will certainly be.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_year
