Date to Unix Timestamp

A date to Unix timestamp converter is a tool or function that converts a given date and time to a Unix timestamp format. A Unix timestamp is a numeric representation of time in seconds that has elapsed since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 UTC.

The formula to convert a date to Unix timestamp is:

Unix timestamp = (date - January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 UTC) / total number of seconds in a day

Here, "date" is the date and time to be converted to Unix timestamp, and "total number of seconds in a day" is 86,400 seconds (24 hours x 60 minutes x 60 seconds).

For example, to convert the date and time "September 1, 2021, 12:00:00 PM" to Unix timestamp, we can use the following formula:

Unix timestamp = (September 1, 2021, 12:00:00 PM - January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 UTC) / 86,400

= (1630492800 - 0) / 86,400

= 18862.5

Therefore, the Unix timestamp for "September 1, 2021, 12:00:00 PM" is 18862.5.
