The hour is a unit of time and is a multiple of an SI base unit with the symbol hr.
There are 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour. Consequently, there are 3600 seconds in an hour.
In a mean solar day, there are 24 hours.
Originally in the Middle East, the hour was defined as 1/12 of the day or night time. However, seasonal factors clearly affected all of these definitions and an average is used today to normalise and allow calculations.
