## Info about "Day"

Although the day (d) (Latin: dies) is not part of the International SI System of Units, it is indirectly approved for use with the SI through its definition that a day has 24 hours, and it is indirectly permitted for use with the SI. This is because the second form the official SI base value.

Therefore, 1 day equals 24 hours; 1440 minutes = 86,400 seconds 1 second equals 0.0000115741 days.

For thousands of years, the astronomical day (i.e., the time from sunrise to sunrise again) was the historical basic unit of time. The first reliable time measurements were made by the Egyptians in daylight using sundials, which they divided into 12 units according to their usual system of twelve numbers. At night, they used the position of the 12 stars to measure the time at night. It was not yet so important as days were longer in summer than in winter. Basically, the day and night were divided into twelve time periods. It was only 2,000 years ago that Greek astronomers divided the day into hours of equal length.

The day as the basis for time was not replaced by the second until the middle of the 20th century. With the use of modern quartz clocks, it was proven that the astronomical day (i.e., one revolution of the Earth) is constantly becoming somewhat slower. This confirmed the assumption that magma shifts beneath the earth's mantle and also the tides slow down the Earth's rotation. Therefore, since 1956, the second has been defined in such a way that it is measured by an atomic clock and a leap second must be added to the calendar year every 2 to 5 years. Hence, a day that is actually 86,400.003 atomic seconds long is always 86,400 seconds long, and from time to time, it has a one-off of 86,401 seconds.

## Info about "Minute"

The minute (min) is not part of the SI International System of Units, but it is approved for use with the SI. The minute is derived from the base unit second. This makes it a legal unit of measurement.

Therefore, 1 minute equals 60 seconds, or 1 second equals 0.0166667 minutes.

After the day had already been divided into 24 units in ancient Egypt, Greek astronomers began 2000 years to divide each of these 24 units into 60 units using the Babylonian sexagesimal system. These 60 units were known as the "diminished part" (Latin: pars minuta), and this led to the term called “minute”. The “minutes” were again subdivided into 60 subunits (i.e., a "second diminished part" (Latin: pars minuta secunda), which in turn is termed "second". Therefore, the minute was defined astronomically as one-60th of an hour, and thus as one-60th of one-24th of a day.

It is now known that the earth's rotation slightly slows down, so the astronomical days always become minimally longer. The basic unit of time (the second) is now measured by atomic clocks, which are more accurate than the astronomical day. Therefore, a leap second must be added every 2 to 5 years in order to synchronise the atomic clocks with the earth's rotation again. As a result, a calendar minute then lasts 61 seconds.

## Basis for conversion Day (d) to Minute (min) and vice versa

The abbreviation for the "Time unit Day" is d. The abbreviation for the "Time unit Minute" is min.
