Solution 15E Step 1: Number of hours in a day, 1 day = 24 hours We know that, 1 hour = 60 minute 1 minute = 60 seconds. So, total number of seconds in 1 hour = 60 × 60 seconds = 3600 seconds Total number of seconds in 1 day = 24 × 3600 seconds = 86400 seconds Total number of seconds in 1 year = 365.24 × 86400 seconds, T = 3.16 × 10 seconds 7
