How Many Seconds In A Year? Learn It Here

Have you ever wondered how many seconds are in a year?

A leap year has 366 days and a normal year has 365 days. The difference is in the month of February. In a leap year, the month of February has 29 days while in a normal year February has 28 days.

A leap year appears at an interval of 4 years. For instance year 2000 was a leap year and so the next leap year was 2004, and then 2008, 2012, 2016, 2020, on and on.

Now, if you want to know the total number of seconds in one leap year, you multiply the total number of seconds in one day (24 hours) by the total number of days in that year.


Total number of seconds in a day is 24 hours x 60minutes x 60 seconds = 86,400 seconds.

So to get the total number of seconds per leap year: 86400×366= 31,622,400

36,622,400 is the number of seconds in a leap year.

For a shorter year you will multiply seconds per day by 365 days.

86,400×365=31,536,000 seconds in a normal year like 2019.

Delivery Attempted – No Access To Delivery Location

Delivery Attempted – no access to delivery location is phrase used in the United States by Postal Service delivery.

This label basically means that delivery of the parcel had been attempted but due to some circumstances the postman could not deliver it successfully. The reasons behind the delivery service returning your mail to your local post office may vary.

Some of the reasons may be,

  1. Hostile reception of the delivery man service.
  2. Double parking near the mail box so that the delivery man can’t access the mail box without getting out of the vehicle.
  3. Blocked mail box.
  4. Inaccessible mail box
  5. No one to sign and pick mail if it needs a signature.

If it happens the mail is returned back to the local post office where the owner  can go and pick it or wait for another attempt.




List Index Out Of Range

The term ”List index out of range” is a programming language error term.

It means that the index that is declared has exceeded the rage declared. In simple terms, it means that you are trying to use an index or indexes that are not valid or out of range of what has been declared.

For example,
When 4 elements are declared to a list, only 0, 1, 2 and 3 which total to four are used.  4 is not used. If you try using 1, 2, 3, 4 or 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 then ”List out of range” error will be prompted. Automatically, zero (0) will always be factored in, and that’s why you use total -(minus) 1.

Now, to correct that error you need to watch, print or echo the counter variable before you use the array.

Looking Forward To Speaking With You – The Correct Way

When somebody tells you that ‘I look forward to speaking with you’ what they actually mean is that they are expecting to have a conversation with you in the near future. (I am using ‘they’ -plural to mean he/she).

The phrase ‘I look forward to speaking with you’ is correct and is mostly used in formal communication at the end of the communication. The sentence is written in a formal manner but can be improved further by rephrasing it this way; I am looking forward to speaking with you.

The (`-ing) in the looking and the (`-ing) in speaking sounds better than when the sentence reads ‘I look forward to speaking with you’.

Which Operation Could We Perform In Order To Find The Number Of Milliseconds In A Year?

Let’s use a normal year which has 365 days on this calculation.

For this operation forget about using months in the calculation. They have irregular days and therefore complicate the operation. Lets use days, hours, minutes seconds and milliseconds.

Now if a normal year has 365 days and,
1 day has 24 hours

1 hour has 60 minutes

1 minute has 60 seconds and

1 second has 1000 milliseconds

Then the number of milliseconds in a year can be calculated in this way;

Days multiply by hours multiply by minutes multiply by seconds multiply by milliseconds will give you the number of milliseconds in a year.

365 days x 24 hours x 60 minutes x 60 seconds x 1000 milliseconds


That’s huge! It’s thirty one billion, five hundred and thirty six million milliseconds.

A leap year has more. Let’s calculate and see how many milliseconds it has.


That’s 31 billion 622 million 400 thousands milliseconds. That’s awesome.
