**Minute**

**Definition**

The minute is a unit of time that is 60 seconds long. One minute isn't 60 seconds though because sometimes there's a leap second, which makes it 61 seconds long.

**Origin**

One minute is derived from the Latin pars minuta prima meaning first small part. The minute originally was 1/60th of an hour, or 60 seconds. This was based on the average length of a day, otherwise known as a mean solar day.

**Current use**

The minute is a unit of time that equals 60 seconds, and it's used in many different situations, When timing races, measuring cooking or baking times, counting the number of heart beats per minute, and beyond.

**Hour**

**Definition**

An hour is a unit of time that is traditionally defined as 1/24th of a day, which is to say 3,600 seconds. However, in Coordinated Universal Time, there are some cases where an extra second will be added to the hour in order to stay on schedule,- meaning that an hour can have a positive or negative leap second.

**Origin**

The word hour comes from the Anglo-Norman word houre and shares a few meanings with other variations of the word in different cultures. For example, the Greeks would measure an hour as 1/60th of their daily period according to daylight or darkness. The Egyptians were believed to be first to divide their 24-hour cycles into 12 sections for measuring periods of daylight and darkness.

**Current use**

The hour is a system of time measure. It's typically used globally to mean one hour, but it can be any measurement of time. Most jobs require work for a certain number of hours per day, and the amount you get paid depends on how much you work. Durations that are 30 minutes long are commonly used in casual conversation.
