# Convert Year to Minute

Please provide values below to convert year [y] to minute [min], or *vice versa*.

### Year

**Definition:** A year (symbol: y, yr, or a) is a measurement of time based on Earth's orbital period around the sun. This is approximated as 365 or 366 days in the Gregorian calendar. Earth's orbit around the sun is seen as the passing of seasons in which weather, daylight hours, vegetation, and soil fertility, among other things, change.

**History/origin:** Various definitions of a year have been used by different calendars throughout history. The most commonly used calendar for civil affairs today is the Gregorian calendar, a solar calendar which consists of 365 or 366 days, depending on whether or not the year is a leap year. In astronomy, many other definitions of the year exist, such as the sidereal, draconic, lunar, and Gaussian year, among others.

The Gregorian calendar is a calendar that was reformed from the Julian calendar, which was a calendar that itself was reformed from the ancient Roman calendar.

**Current use:** The definition of a year based on the Gregorian calendar is used worldwide. In some cultures, lunisolar calendars are also used. In astronomy, many different definitions of the year are used, including the Julian year as a unit of time equal to 365.25 days based on the SI (International System of Units) base unit of seconds.

The term "year" is also used to describe periods that are loosely associated to the calendar year, such as the seasonal year, fiscal year, and academic year.

### 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.
