PLEASE HELP i dont know how many seconds are in a year and in the "forum" bit on this site it won't let me click on it can you giv eme the answer-i'm 11 and i#v to do it for homework.
many thanks, olivia |

Easy: type this into Google how many seconds in a year
The Google Calculator will tell you the answer is 31 556 926 seconds |

Interesting – is that for a leap-year too?!? ;-)
This is actually a difficult question to answer – the "pat" answer is 60X60X24X365 (or 366) ... but since a year is a revolution around the sun, you should multiple by 365 and 1/4 (or so) ... but there are actually different astronomical definations of a year, so the answer is even more complicated ... but wait, NIST periodically adds "leap-seconds" to keep time "accurate" ... so that fudges it up even more! |

its very simple beacuase you go to some websites like google and find it. |

I want to know how many seconds in a year because there is a HUGE!!!!!! argument in my class on how many there are is it 3516000 or 34716000 or 31536000 or 31556 925 i just don't know so please tell me |

how many seconds are there in a year |

If you multiply 365 days (24h/d)(60m/h)(60s/m) you get 31 536 000 seconds. That's how many seconds there are in 365 days. But now you have to tell me exactly what a year is. If a year is 365 days, 31 536 000 seconds is the right answer. If a year is 365 1/4 days (about the time it takes for the earth to go around the sun), the answer is 31 557 600 seconds. But if you do a search on Google, you get 31 556 926 seconds. If you ask Google the number of days in a year, it reports 1 year = 365.242199 days. If you change that number of days to seconds, you get 31 556 926 seconds. Find out what your teacher means by a year, and then you can give the expected answer. |

So is the blog.outer-court.com now the homework help network.. Hmmmm. We might be able to do a good job with that. I was thinking about a multi-person website that had a DB with Adsense Username/PW data.. Depending on the most active participants, the website would dynamically know what Adsense key to use. |

An interesting bug – trying [how many seconds in a Year] doesn't invoke calculator – all the terms must be lowercase. |

5,000 years ago ancient Egyptian found earth complets a turn around sun (year)on 365 days 5 hrs. 48 min.and 46 seconds. 365x24x60x60=31536000 5x60x60 = 18000 48x60 = 2880 46 = 46 _____________ Total 31,556,926 |

damn u guys are the real proper maths geeks! |

12 seconds in a year – Jan 2d, Feb 2nd, March 2nd... |

i hate math but i was curious about this i searched it the answer is Okay, here we go! There are 60 seconds in a minute, and 60 minutes in an hour. So there are 60 x 60 seconds in an hour, in other words 3600 seconds in an hour. Furthermore, there are 24 hours in a day, so there are 24 x 3600 seconds = 86400 seconds in a day. Also, there are 365 days in a year, so there are 365 x 86400 seconds = 31,536,000 seconds in a year. Let's summarize this in a table:
1 hour = 3600 seconds 1 day = 86400 seconds 1 year = 31,536,000 seconds heres the site mathforum.org/library/drmath/v ... |
