What does the number 78291.0 represent? Is it a number of seconds?

You know that an hour contains 60 minutes and a minute contains 60 seconds (and ofcourse an hour contains 60 * 60 = 3600 seconds). So, how would you convert 78291 seconds to hours, minutes and seconds? First think about the logic before trying to write a program to do this.
