Why are there only 60 seconds in a minute



Hello mate, 

In this post, I am going to share you an ordinary information that Why are there only 60 seconds in a minute.


Have you ever thought of this simple question that why there only 60 seconds in a minute? 

But our ancestors thought about the time and they proposed the time management system.

Today, our numerical system is based on the number 10, but in older civilizations, the numerical system is based on the number 60.

The ancient Babylonians used a counting system built on the number 60 and the Ancient Egyptians, using sand filled hour glasses, are credited with dividing the day into segments, also based on the number 60.


Even now, 60 is considered a convenient number for calculations. It is the smallest number that is easily divisible by two, three, four, five, six and ten.

The number 60 is also advantageous when used in geometry because there are 360 degrees in a circle and the clock gets its round shape because a circle can be easily divided by 60 to get sixty minutes, of which each minute is 60 seconds.

Think about our ancestors how genius they are, over 3000 years ago, Man was smart enough to invent a time accounting system that serves us well even today. 

I hope surely that no one will think about this simple question Why are there only 60 seconds in a minute before reading this post, but now you are clear with it right....
