Lesson Transcript
Instructor: Mia Primas

Mia has taught math and science and has a Master's Degree in Secondary Teaching.

This lesson will show you how to calculate the number of seconds in one year. Each step of the calculation converts one year to a smaller unit until the solution is in seconds.

## Steps in Conversion

How many seconds are there in one year? To convert one year to seconds, there are four steps, each one converting one year into a smaller unit until the solution is in seconds. These steps are as follows:

1. Convert one year to days.
2. Convert days to hours.
3. Convert hours to minutes.
4. Convert minutes to seconds.

The following equivalent units will be used in the calculation:

 1 year = 365 days 1 day = 24 hours 1 hour = 60 minutes 1 minute = 60 seconds

## Performing the Calculation

#### Step 4: Convert minutes to seconds.

So, one year is equal to 31,536,000 seconds.
