### What are hour and second

Definition of hour

An hour is a unit of time conventionally reckoned as 1⁄24 of a day and scientifically reckoned as 3,599–3,601 seconds, depending on conditions. It is a consistent period recognized across the globe for the purpose of coordinating activities and schedules. Hours are further divided into minutes and seconds for finer time measurements.

Definition of second

A second is the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI), defined as exactly 9,192,631,770 cycles of radiation corresponding to the transition between two energy levels of the caesium-133 atom at 0 K. This definition makes the second a highly precise measurement used globally for timekeeping and scientific research.

### hour to second Conversion Table

Degree hour (deg-hr) Degree second (deg-s)
0.01 deg-hr 36 deg-s
0.1 deg-hr 360 deg-s
0.5 deg-hr 1800 deg-s
1 deg-hr 3600 deg-s
2 deg-hr 7200 deg-s
3 deg-hr 10800 deg-s

10 deg-hr 36000 deg-s
12 deg-hr 43200 deg-s
24 deg-hr 86400 deg-s

#### Conversion of hour to second

1 deg-hr = 3600 deg-s
1 deg-s = 1/3600 deg-hr

Example 1:
Convert 2 deg-hr to deg-s:
2 deg-hr = 2 Ã— 3600 deg-s = 7200 deg-s

Example 2:
Convert 0.5 deg-hr to deg-s:
0.5 deg-hr = 0.5 Ã— 3600 deg-s = 1800 deg-s

### History of hour and second
