Different units of time in our daily life
A watch, a clock, or a calendar - We keep track of time every day with different devices. There are many units to measure time depending on the duration. Here are a few of them:
Seconds (s): Second is the basic unit of time in the SI unit system. Apart from its daily usage, other physical attributes like speed and frequency use seconds as the unit of time. The modern definition of a second depends on the radiation state of the cesium atom. Still, it is approximately equal to 1/86400ᵗʰ of a mean solar day, as per its historical definition.
Minutes (min): Although it does feel longer when you're planking, a minute is equal to sixty seconds, or 1/60ᵗʰ of an hour. This unit is perfect for measuring time over sixty seconds but less than 60 minutes.
Hours (h or hrs): An hour is sixty times a minute or 1/24ᵗʰ of a mean solar day, meaning it takes roughly 24 hours for the Earth to complete one rotation.
Days: A day is equal to 24 hours, or one complete rotation of the Earth.
Weeks (wks): One calender week is seven days.
Months (mos): There are seven months with 31 days, four months with 30 days, and one month with 28 (or 29) days. However, for time conversion, we can use an average value and say that one month is 30.44 days.
Years (yrs): A year has 365 days. A leap year has 366 days, with one leap day in February. It is the orbital period of the Earth around the Sun. For conversion, it is acceptable to say that a year has 365.25 days. You'll find that our time unit converter uses this value.
Days to hours? Hours to minutes? Converting between units of time
If you're still unclear about how to convert minutes to hours, minutes to days, or hours to days, we hope the following conversion table clears things up:
1 year = 12 months = 365.25 days
1 month = 4.348 weeks = 30.44 days
1 week = 7 days = 168 hrs
1 day = 24 hrs = 1440 mins
1 hr = 60 mins = 3600 s
1 min = 60 s
Test your understanding: Convert 7200 minutes to days. Verify your answer with this time converter calculator.
