Is that a US billion or a UK billion

I think in the US billion it would be around 4.32329886 1016 seconds - Give or take a few

Assuming your figures are correct:

= 137 x 100,000,000 x 31,536 x 1000

= 137 x 31,536 x 100,000,000 x 1000

= 137 x 31,536 x 100,000,000,000

= 4,320,432 x 100,000,000,000

= 432,043,200,000,000,000 seconds

btw that's just the current est. of the age of the universe.

Of course a day is not just 24 hours, and a year isn't just 365 days, hence leap years.

My computer(not the PC ) gave me an error when i've tryed to do this opperation. Anyway because i'm very good on math i can say those things

13.7 bilion years = 5000.5 bilion days = 120.012 bilion hours = 7.200.720 bilion minutes = 432.043.200 bilion seconds.

Well, now we put 9 zeroes after that number and we obtain 432.043.200.000.000.000

Now that's a big number

Perl script for age of the universe in seconds

Here is my contribution.

Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl # How old is the universe in seconds ? # (c) Svetoslav Marinov <slavi----AT----slavi.biz> http://devcha.blogspot.com # (c) 2008 # GPL use strict; use bigint; # How old is the universe in seconds? # http://www.v7n.com/forums/forum-lobb...e-seconds.html # John Scot # 13.7 Billions years my $total_years = 13_700_000_000; # secs in 1 year # 1 year is 365.25 and every 4 years we have a leap year. # 12 - months # 24 - hours # 3600 - seconds in 1 hour my $year_to_sec = 365.25 * 12 * 24 * 3600; print "The Universe is " . ($total_years * $year_to_sec) . " second(s) old.\n"; # The Result should be # The Universe is 5184518400000000000 second(s) old.

It's great to remember how to play with perl sometimes

Code:
$ perl -e 'use bigint;' -e 'print "The age of universe is " . 13_700_000_000 * 365.25 * 12 * 24 * 3600 ." second(s) \n";'

one of the questions where there is no right answer......

first: writing down the answer - pressing enter - takes 2 - 3 seconds.....so the written answer is already wrong

second: to come as close as possible to the correct answer we would have to know, what 13,7 billion we are talking about. it could be everything from 13.700.000.001 to 13.743.999.999 years.......

third: the answer would be a lot easier if one believes in creationism!

Do you mean Earth seconds? Its impossible to tell in any case. I know there is carbon dating and good scientific estimates, but there might be evidence out there that we simply didn't discover.
The most correct answer would be be "many" or "a lot"

The Universe in seconds

How old is the universe in seconds

That depends on who you ask

According to Brahman cosmology of ancient India

the universe goes through a 4,320,000,000 cycle 100 times

Whereas some people believe the world is only 10,000 years old
