 Sat Nov 29, 2014 12:16 am  by harvey The smallest theoretically mesurable interval of time is the Planck time, which is 5.391e-44 seconds (cf. physics.nist.gov/cgi-bin/cuu/Value?plkt). The number of distinguishable seconds in a minute should be 59 / (Planck time) = 1.094e+45.

 Wed Nov 16, 2016 9:33 am  by polarsystem 60 + twenty-second + thirty-second + forty-second + fifty-second = 60 + 20 + 30 + 40 + 50 = 200 seconds
 Sat Jan 21, 2017 1:12 am  by imsequoyah there are no seconds for a minute. After the minute is over, it's gone. Now it's the next minute's turn. It won't get a second turn either.
