 You are watching: 60*60*24*365.25 1 year in seconds per Google is not 60*60*24*365 1 allude by julien on Sept 1, 2010 | hide | past | favourite | 3comments 606024*365 = 31 536 000 yet Google says that it"s in reality : 31 556 926 seconds.http://www.google.com/search?q=1+year+in+secondsAnd Wolfram Alpha rounds up : http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=1+year+in+SecondsLeap years FTW!
 also note the 1 month in days is 30.4368499.There just isn"t a great way to convert between labels for details periods the time and also units for measuring the pass of time. The difficulty is the language and also common intake don"t make lot of a distinction between the two. If girlfriend ask people how long a day is, they"ll tell girlfriend 24 hours. Also Google will tell friend that, yet it isn"t true. A work is generally 24 hours. DST and leap seconds deserve to both change the size of a work though. For this reason a job isn"t a unit because that measuring time in ~ all. It"s a surname for a certain period of time. Leap secs can even mess through terms the seem bulletproof favor "hour" or "minute". Once there"s a leap second, one minute the the year i do not care 61 seconds, and the equivalent hour becomes 3601 seconds.The just unit that time you deserve to reliably occupational with is the 2nd (and metric derivations thereof, favor millisecond).
 difference is in reality 20,926. Leap years account for 21,600. There is tho 326 secs to find.I yes, really wonder exactly how google counts them.
