1 year consists of 365 days. 1 day has 24 hours, each hour has 60 minutes and each minute has 60 seconds.
This gives the number of seconds in an hour as 60*60 = 3600 and the number of seconds in a day as 24*3600 = 86400
The number of seconds in 365 days is 86400*365 = 31536000 seconds.
There are 31536000 seconds in a year.

Question: How many seconds are in a year?
Solution: Facts : Generally a year consists of 365 or 366 ( for a leap year)
Day consists of 24 hrs and each hour has 60 minutes in which each minute is further sub divided into 60 seconds
Now from this data you can answer your question
For a Non-leap year: Number of days = 365
Number of hours in a year = 365*24 = 8760
Number of minutes in a year = 365*24*60 = 525,600
Number of seconds in a year = 365*24*60*60 = 31,536,000
For a leap year: Number of days = 366
Number of hours in a year = 366*24 = 8,784
Number of minutes in a year = 366*24*60 = 527,040
Number of seconds in a year = 366*24*60*60 = 31,622,400
Conclusion: In a year we have 31.536 Million seconds for non Leap year and 31.6224 Million seconds fro a Leap year
1 year = 365 days = 31,536,000 (365 days x 86,400 seconds per day)
1 day = 24 hours = 86,400 seconds (24 hours x 3600 seconds per hour)
1 hour = 60 minutes = 3600 seconds (60 minutes x 60 seconds per minute)
1 minute = 60 seconds
31 556 926 seconds
Thankyou so much
1 year=365 day
the day=24 hour
the hour=60 minutes
and the minute=60 seconds
=> the number of seconds in year is
365*24*60*60=31536000 seconds
