Year (Gregorian)

Year (Gregorian) is time unit, symbol: [a, y, or yr]. Definition of 1 year (Gregorian) = 365.2425 d average. As the common year has 365 days, the Gregorian calendar with leap years compensate the deviation from the real, astronomical year. According to this calendar, every 4th year is a leap year, except for every 100th. But every 400th is a leap year. This means that there are 97 leap years in 400 year period.
