### 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 3,600 seconds. It is a long-standing measure that has been used by various cultures and civilizations, reflecting the division of the day's cycle as the earth rotates. Hours are most commonly understood as periods of time equal to 60 minutes, where each minute is equal to 60 seconds, aggregating to a total of 3,600 seconds in one hour.

Definition of second

A second is the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI), commonly understood as 1/60th of a minute. It is defined by taking the fixed numerical value of the cesium frequency, which is the unperturbed ground-state hyperfine transition frequency of the cesium-133 atom, to be 9,192,631,770 when expressed in the unit Hz, which is equal to s^-1. This definition links the second to the fundamental properties of nature and provides for a stable and precise timekeeping standard.
