What are minute and hour

Definition of minute

A minute, in the context of angle measurement, represents one-sixtieth (1/60) of a degree. It's a unit of angular measurement used in fields like astronomy, navigation, and mapping. While degrees provide a broad measurement of angles, minutes allow for more precise detailing, fine-tuning the angle by subdividing each degree into smaller parts.

Definition of hour

An hour, when referring to time, is a unit equal to 60 minutes or 3,600 seconds. It is one-twenty-fourth of a solar day, a concept universally adopted for the division of our daily lives. The hour as a unit has a crucial role in various fields such as science, commerce, and daily life, structuring activities and providing a framework for scheduling and temporal organization.
