You can easily convert 72 hours to days using each unit definition.

Hours

hour 60 min 360000 seconds

Days

day 24 hr 863991 seconds

With this information, you can count how many days 72 hours is equal too.

## What is the inverse calculation between 1 day and 72 hours?

Performing the inverse calculation of this relationship, we obtain that one day is equal to.33333333 times 72 hours, or approximately 0.3 days. A day is zero times 70.5 hours.

# How many minutes are there in a year?

It might seem simple enough to find out how many minutes there are in a year, especially if you like math. You are likely to arrive at five hundred and twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes (525,600), which is, of course, correct if you proceed with the calculation. You may not have known, however, that this answer is just as likely to be wrong as it is to be right.

**How to calculate the number of minutes in a year**

To understand why and what situation could result in 525,600 minutes being wrong, let’s first examine how this result was calculated. You don’t need to be worried if you don’t enjoy mathematics or find calculation difficult in general, because the calculation process is really simplified here. It doesn’t take more than basic geometry knowledge to understand it. Just follow the steps outlined in the guide and you’ll be fine.

- STEP ONE: Determine the units of time within a year

You could go down to seconds now, but that is not necessary for now. A year consists of 12 months, each month is made up of days, a day has 24 hours, and an hour has 60 minutes.

- STEP TWO: Calculate how many days there are in a year

There are 365 days in a year, but the number of days in the months is different. Therefore, it is easier to calculate and work with 365 days in a year.

- STEP THREE: Determine the number of minutes in a day

Simply multiply the number of minutes in an hour with the number of hours in a day to get the answer.

60 (minutes) x 24 = 1440 minutes (in a day)

- STEP FOUR: Calculate a year’s duration by multiplying days by minutes

1440 (minutes) x 365 = 525,600 minutes (in a year).

It is quite easy and straightforward to come up with the answer above, and it is also the most commonly accepted answer since in most cases, when the number of minutes is asked, it is meant to be minutes in a year.

**The unpopular answer for the number of minutes in a year**

You may score a hundred percent if you present the answer above in a general setting, but that may not be the case in a critical situation. You probably wonder what makes the popular and generally accepted answer so different from the one in the critical setting, like in an advanced geography class or before a critical professor of science.

**Calculating the actual number of minutes in a year (critically speaking)**

Earth revolves around the sun every 365 days, so the number of days in a year is derived from that. It probably already occurred to you or you had an idea about it. It may surprise you to learn that 365 days are not actually part of a year. In order for the earth to complete a revolution, it takes about 365 and a quarter days (6 hours). Due to this, the month of February gets an extra day every four years due to the leap year. So, in a critical setting, the total minutes in a year would be given by

Total minutes in day x 365 ΒΌ or

Total minutes in a day x (365 days + 6 hours)

Number of minutes in 6 hours = 60 x 6 = 360minutes

Number of minutes in 365 days = 1440 x 365 = 525,600 minutes

Total number of minutes = 525,600 + 360 = 525,960 minutes.

It is very important to note that if you provide the above answer in a place where such criticality is not required, you would be considered wrong.
