**Steve**, Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 10:25amseconds in a year = 31,536,000

After n snaps, Sn = 2^n - 1 seconds have passed.

So, what is log_{2}31536000?

That is 24.9

So, there will be 24 snaps in the year.

25 snaps would require 2^25 = 33554432 seconds.

**Steve**, Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 10:27amActually, that does not count the snap that starts the events. So, add 1, making 25 snaps.

snaps seconds

1 0

2 1

3 3

4 7

5 15

n 2^(n-1) - 1

So, 2^(n-1) = 31536001

n-1 = log_{2}

so, there will be 25 snaps, but for a different reason.
