*How many days are in a year? By reading further, you’ll get thousands of step-by-step solutions to your homework questions.*

A common year has 365 days in the Gregorian Calendar. Every four years, there is a leap year in which the month of February has one extra day, resulting in 366 days on a Leap Year.

The length of a Day is determined by the time it takes the Earth to completely rotate on its axis, and is measured twice consecutively by the time it takes the Sun to reach its highest point in the sky.

One rotation of the Earth around the Sun takes 12 months. These months are divided into units of 28, 30, or 31 days and correspond to the entire year.

As a result, one solar year is actually 365. 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds, or 25 days.

Every four years, a leap year occurs, adding one extra day to the calendar to compensate for the extra 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds.
