Our seconds converter is here to help you convert seconds into a different time unit. Whether you wish to convert seconds into minutes, hours, days, or years, our converter has you covered!

Are you wondering how to convert seconds to days? You don't have to be confounded by such questions anymore! Below, we shall briefly look at the different conversion rates to help you answer such questions.

Converting seconds into different time units

We use many different time units in our daily life, prime among them being seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years. The following relations between different time units are relevant to our discussion:

• An hour has 60 minutes;

• A minute has 60 seconds;

• A day has 24 hours;

• A week has 7 days;

• A (sidereal) year has approximately 365.25 days; and

• A calendar year has 12 months, which gives approximately 30.44 days per month.

Using these relations, we can formulate the conversion rates from seconds to other time units as follows:

Time second conversion rate

1 sec

= 1/60 min

= 1/3600 hr

= 1/86400 day

= 1/604800 wk

= 1/2629800 month

= 1/31557600 yr

How to use this seconds converter

FAQs

How do I convert seconds into days?

2. Verify the result using our seconds converter.

How many seconds in one year?

There are 31,557,600 seconds in a year! To figure this out yourself, follow these steps:

1. Convert one year into days: 1 yr = 365.25 days.

2. Multiply with 24 to get the number of hours in a year: 1 yr = 365.25 days × 24 hrs/day = 8766 hrs.

3. Multiply by 60 to get the number of minutes in a year: 1 yr = 8766 hrs × 60 min/hr = 525960 mins.

4. Multiply by 60 again to get the number of seconds in a year: 1yr = 525960 × 60 sec/min = 31557600 sec.
