First, make sure that you are talking about full days and/or fractions of days that have been measured accurately to the nearest second. This may seem unnecessary, but it makes no sense to convert a measurement to seconds if the original measurement is accurate to, say, 'roughly half a day'. This doesn't mean that you already start out knowing the number of seconds.

For example, you may start at exactly 12 noon on Monday, and you want the number of seconds between then and exactly midnight of Thursday night, that week. This time period is exactly 3.5 days of standard time.

Take the number of days (3.5) and multiply by 24 to give the number of hours. 3.5 X 24 = 84 hours. Multiply the number of hours by 60, giving the number of minutes. 84 X 60 = 5040 minutes. Then multiply the number of minutes by 60 to give the number of seconds. 5040 X 60 = 302,400. There are 302,400 seconds in exactly3.5 days.
