### 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.

### Millisecond

Definition: A millisecond (symbol: ms) is a unit of time based on the SI (International System of Units) base unit of time, the second, and is equal to one-thousandth of a second.

History/origin: The millisecond is based on the SI unit of second, making use of the SI prefix of "milli," meaning 1/1000.
