# How many Seconds are in a Day?

## Seconds in a day calculation

One day has 24 hours, one hour has 60 minutes and one minute has 60 seconds, so 24 hours/day times 60 minutes/hour times 60 seconds/minute is equal to 86400 seconds/day:

1 day = 24 hours/day × 60 minutes/hour × 60 seconds/minute = 86400 seconds/day
