## A bit of history about hour and second

### Hour

An hour is a measure of time that is traditionally reckoned as $\frac{1}{24}$ of a day and scientifically reckoned between 3,599 and 3,601 seconds, depending on the speed of the Earth's rotation. An hour has 60 minutes and a day has 24 hours.

### Second

The second is the International System of Units (SI) measure of time, previously defined as $\frac{1}{86400}$ of a day - this figure derived by dividing the day first into 24 hours, then 60 minutes, and lastly 60 seconds each $24×60×60=86400$.
