The only reason I ask this question, is because I did some work on a project for the energy industry. They had to calculate energy usage on an hourly basis and I learned it from this.
Technically, yes, there are 24 hours in a day...BUT, because of daylight savings time, there is one day that has 23 hours and one day that has 25 hours. Except in Arizona. See how complicated this gets if you are trying to program it in software.

Yes, this is true in a day-to-day situation, and only in the US... not other countries. I think if you are looking for a "universal" answer, you need to go back to my original post of 23.9344696 hours, which is the time it take for the earth to rotate once on its axis, no matter where the observer is.
Anyway, we shouldn't lose to much sleep over it. That answer is only about 4 seconds less than 24 hours.

So how many states? Someone mentioned 57? What?? In America? There are 0. Canada is another country - I don't think anyone in Canada will admit to being part of 'America.' Besides, they have Provinces, not States. Mexico is a Republic with its own states. The United States of America has 50 with outlying territories and protectorates like Puerto Rico. lol
Properly named, North America is a continent. America doesn't exist. lol But this only applies if you want to get technical. haha
