Number of Hours in a Year

How many hours are there in a year?


Most years in the Gregorian calendar have a total of 8,760 hours. In the Gregorian calendar a regular year consists of 365 days, and each day has 24 hours, so 365 days x 24 hours = 8,760 hours. The exception to this are on  leap years where there are 366 days in the year, in which case there are 8,784 hours for the year.
