Some facts#

  • Time allows us to sort events according to their occurence.
  • Time is a scalar quantity, which means that it is enough to give one number (values).
  • The basic unit of time in the SI system is one second (1 s).
  • The definition of a second changes with the progress of physics. In 1967, at the XIII General Conference on Weights and Measures, the second was defined as "the duration of 9 192 631 770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium-133 atom at a temperature of 0 K".
  • In classical physics time is treated in a special way. It is assumed that time is an independent quantity, which exists independently in isolation from all other quantities.
  • In relativistic physics time is one of the coordinates treated analogously to the space x,y,z coordinates (in Cartesian system).

How to convert#

  • Enter the number to field "value" - enter the NUMBER only, no other words, symbols or unit names. You can use dot (.) or comma (,) to enter fractions.
    Examples:
    • 1000000
    • 123,23
    • 999.99999
  • Find and select your starting unit in field "unit". Some unit calculators have huge number of different units to select from - it's just how complicated our world is...
  • And... you got the result in the table below. You'll find several results for many different units - we show you all results we know at once. Just find the one you're looking for.
