Info about "Week"

Today, the week is a common unit of time of seven days in almost all cultures. However, it is neither a legal unit nor a physical unit of time in the sense of the international SI system of units, as seconds, minutes or hours are.

Here, 1 week is equal to 7 days, 1 day is therefore equal to 0.14286 weeks.

Historically, the combination of seven days into a unit of one week can be traced back to the length of one moon. The entire phase from full moon to full moon again lasts slightly longer than 28 days. This is divided into four lunar phases (full moon - waning crescent - new moon - waxing crescent - full moon), which suggests the division of the 28 days into four weeks of seven days each.

Info about "Hour"

The hour (h) (Latin: hora) is not part of the International SI System of Units, but is permitted for use with the SI. The hour is derived from the base unit second. This makes it a legal unit of measurement.

Here, 1 hour is equal to 3,600 seconds or 1 second is equal to 0.00027778 hours (3,600ths).

For thousands of years before the hour was officially defined as 3,600 times a second, it was considered the 24th part of a day. But how did the day originally to a division of the day into 24 hours? In ancient Egypt, sundials were used to divide the day into 24 hours based on the then common system (duodecimal system), which was common at the time. The twelve-unit system may have originated historically from the fact that one the individual finger links (three links per finger without thumb) were used for counting. Of course, sundials could not be used at night, so that the Egyptians used the course of 12 stars to divide the night into 12 time units. This means that even today the day still has 24 hours.

The hour was only reverted to the basic unit of the second in the middle of the 20th century, after it was established that the astronomical day, or one revolution of the Earth, was becoming shorter and shorter, albeit only minimally. At the same time, quartz clocks were able to measure time more accurately, making the second the basic unit. To synchronise the now even more accurate atomic clocks with the duration of the earth's rotation, a leap second had to be inserted every 2 to 5 years, so that one hour then consists of 3,601 seconds.

Basis for conversion Week (weeks) to Hour (h)

The abbreviation for the "Unit of time Week" is weeks. The abbreviation for the "Unit of time Hour" is h.
