One full revolution takes 24 h. Earth’s spinning movement is used as a basis for time measurements. Time measurements used on the Earth are related to the local meridian of the observation point. Along the entire meridian the local time is identical, as the Sun only passes the plane of the single meridian once per day (24 h). Commonly used time measurements apply a relation between local time and geographic longitude. One degree of longitude corresponds with the time difference of 4 min, so 15 corresponds with 1 h.
