The orbit period year and day-night spin period day are transcendental. Yet, conveniently day is divided into 24 hours. There is no need to disturb this at all. Year in d/h/m/s is transcendental.

#### Explanation:

Transcendental numbers cannot be expressed in mathematical exactitude by computers.Example of transcendental number The circumference of circle of unit diameter cannot be expressed in exactitude. As of now, the single-precision approximation to year is 365.256363 days. However, 1 day = 24 h = 1440 m = 86400 s. this sub division of transcendental day could stay forever..
