A flight is delayed one day and 4 hours. How much is that delay n seconds?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Hours, minute and seconds are some common units of time. These units can be converted into each other with the help of different conversions factors in dimensional analysis method.

Step 2

Conversion factors are used to convert different units into each other. Conversion factors for the conversion of hours to sec is :

1 hour = 3600 seconds

1 day = 24 hours

Step 3

Use this conversion factor to conv...
