Converting time from hours to other units

An hour is equal to 60 minutes, and a minute is equal to 60 seconds. This leaves us with the following conversion rates:

• 1 hr = 60 min; and

• 1 hr = 3600 sec.

Twenty-four hours make a day, and seven days make a week (wks). This allows us to arrive at the following hourly time-converting rates:

• 1 hr = 1/24 day; and

• 1 hr = 1/168 wks.

A (sidereal) year (yr) is approximately equal to 365.25 days. The Gregorian calendar uses 12 months (mos) per year, which leaves approximately 30.44 days per month. Therefore, there are 8766 hrs per year and 730.5 hrs per month. This gives us the following conversion rates:

• 1 hr = 1/8766 yr; and

• 1 hr = 1/730.5 mos.
