Mean time

The mean solar day is divided into 24 hours and the mean solar year is 365.25 days. This universally recognised mean time is based on the fictional principle that the Sun moves along the equator at a constant rate throughout the year, averaging one complete revolution in 24 hours. (See also "Solar time" or "Mean solar time").
