The Normal Duration of I.Sc. Physics Practical Period in Indian Colleges is 100 Minutes. Express this Period in Microcenturies. 1 Microcentur - Physics

Sum

The normal duration of I.Sc. Physics practical period in Indian colleges is 100 minutes. Express this period in microcenturies. 1 microcentury = 106 × 100 years. How many microcenturies did you sleep yesterday?

Solution

1 microcentury = 10−6 × 100 years = 10−4 × 365 × 24 × 60 minutes
$1 \min = \frac{1}{{10}^{- 4} \times 365 \times 24 \times 60} \text{ microcentury }$

$\Rightarrow 100 \min = \frac{1}{{10}^{- 4} \times 365 \times 24 \times 60} \times 100 = \frac{{10}^5}{365 \times 144} = 1 . 9 \text{ microcenturies }$
Suppose, I slept x minutes yesterday.
∴ x min = 0.019x microcenturies
