Actually that changes all the time! To get a general idea, you can count the number of whole days missing, and multiply that by 86,400. That's the number of seconds per day. To get more precision, you can add:

* The number of extra hours (not included in the day count) multiplied by 24

* The number of extra minutes (not included in the hour count) multiplied by 60

You could add the seconds, too, but that's not very practical; while you do the calculation, the number of seconds has already changed. A spreadsheet such as Excel might help.
