###### Richie Adams asked in Daylight Saving Time, Holidays and Traditions, Time

### Why don't we end daylight savings time?

To end daylight saving time (and, by the way, it's "daylight saving" without the second "s") nationwide, we'd need an act of Congress. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 established rules for time zones across the United States and a uniform nationwide daylight saving time period, and per that act, states can opt out of daylight saving, but they can't "spring forward" permanently without Congress.
In 2019, 36 states have proposals for choosing either standard time...

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Units of Measure, Physics, Time

### How many nanosecond are there in 1 year?

Work it out by basic dimensional analysis!
One (average) year = 365.24 days
One day = 24 hours
One hour = 60 minutes
One minute = 60 seconds
so there are 365.24 * 24 * 60 * 60 seconds in a year.
One nanosecond is 10**9 seconds so multiply the above answer by
10**9 (or just shift the decimal point 9 places, it's loads
easier)
BTW this same approach can be used to convert any comparable
sets of units, e.g. miles per hour into metres...
