Number of seconds in a year

How many seconds are there in a year?

31536000 seconds

It is not difficult to calculate the number of seconds in a year.  Everyone knows that 1 year consists of 365 days. 1 day has 24 hours, each hour has 60 minutes and each minute has 60 seconds.  Needless to say, this signifies that the number of seconds in an hour is 60*60 = 3600 seconds.  It is easy to understand that the number of seconds in a day is 24*3600 = 86400 seconds.  Moreover, the number of seconds in 365 days is 86400*365 = 31536000 seconds
