    How long does the device run in two seconds? Three seconds? Five seconds? n seconds?

    How many seconds are there in one minute? Two minutes? Three minutes? 60 minutes?

    Re: seconds to hour

    Yes, this is correct. This is the same thing, but you could also multiply 0.025 by 3600 since there are 60 * 60 = 3600 seconds in an hour.

    Fun fact: There are approximately \pi\cdot10^7 seconds in a year.
