### Day

Definition: A day (symbol: d) is an accepted, non-SI unit of time that is defined based on the SI (International System of Units) unit of time, the second, and is equal to 86,400 seconds.

History/origin: The term "day" originates from the Old English term "dæg." It is approximately equal to the period required for the Earth to complete a full rotation with respect to the sun. This was later re-defined in terms of the second in 1960, when the second was redefined in terms of Earth's orbital motion in the year 1900. The second, and therefore the day, was again re-defined in 1967 by atomic electron transition.

Current use: The day is a term used worldwide within many contexts one of the most common of which is to refer to a time interval of 24 hours. It is also used to reference daytime, or the period of time during which the sun is above the horizon. The term also has other colloquial uses such as the day of the week and fixed clock periods like 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, among others.

### Minute

Definition: A minute (symbol: min) is a unit of time based on the second, the base unit of the International System of Units (SI). It is equal to 60 seconds. Under Coordinated Universal Time, a minute can have a leap second, making the minute equal to 61 rather than 60 seconds.

History/origin: The term "minute" is derived from the Latin "pars minuta prima" which means the "first small part." The minute was originally defined as 1/60 of an hour (60 seconds), based on the average period of Earth's rotation relative to the sun, known as a mean solar day.

Current use: The minute, as a multiple of the second, is used for all manner of measurements of duration, from timing races, measuring cooking or baking times, number of heart beats per minute, to any number of other applications.
