Every Day the Earth gains more time. It is only about three minutes that are gained each day, after the winter solstice.

A clock that gain 30 second every hour will gain how many minutes in a day?

Daylight increase is not a linear function. It is very low at each solstice and equinox, slowly increases to mid term and then decreases again. Latitude also needs to be taken into account.

Every day has 24 hours. Since 1 hour = 60 minutes, (24 hr)*(60 min/hr) = 1440 min. The exception to the 24 hours is that every once in awhile, they add a 'leap second' to the day, so that the atomic clocks stay in sync with the Earth's rotation. If you are referring to minutes of daylight on the Summer Solstice (day with the most daylight hours), then I'm sure there are tables out there to find this information, but it will vary by location. In areas near the Arctic Circle they have daylight nearly all day in the Summer time, for example.

depends what time of the year it is and where you live

Its not a constant value, from the winter solstice (shortest day, Dec 21) the increase is very slight rising to a maximum increase per day at the spring equinox ( Mar 20 ) As a rough guide, the total increase from mid december ( 7 hrs. 2 mins daylight) to mid March (11 hrs 48 mins daylight) is 296 mins. so that gives you 286 mins increase in 91 days = average increase of (286 / 91) 3.14 minutes per day

The amount of daylight on August 1st will depend on where you are in the world. In Indiana on August 1st, there will be 14 hours and 10 minutes of daylight, which will translate to 850 minutes of daylight.

Depends on your latitude, but daylight gain is at a minimum after the winter solstice dwell point ( northern hemisphere) up to maximum daily gain at the spring equinox, gain per day then falls to 0 at the summer solstice dwell point, then this trend is reversed down to the winter solstice, completing the cycle. The graph of daylight hours in say england, resembles a sine curve.

initially only about 20 seconds per day as we head closer to spring the gain increases to over a minute but right after the shortest day of the year we only gain about 20 seconds a day.

At 41 degrees north latitude, you gain some length of daylight every day from December 21 until June 21, and you lose some length of daylight every day from June 21 until December 21. The number of minutes difference from one day to the next also changes. It's greatest on March 21 and on September 21, and when you get to June 21 or December 21, it's almost nothing.

A clock that gain 30 second every hour will gain how many minutes in a day?

6 minutes

We loss 1440 minutes each day

Same as the rest of the planet - about four minutes per day.

50 minutes per day.

No matter where you are on the planet - the day lengthens by four minutes each day, after the winter equinox, up to the summer solstice.

Approximately 4 minutes per day up to the summer solstice... then the day reduces by 4 minutes to the winter solstice.
