Weights 'n' Measures 

I was looking at a music manuscript the other day, wondering just what the duration of the music was. It was marked "adagio", which gives you some clue, but, more importantly, there was also a metronome rate of 52. Given that there were 72 bars of music, I estimated the duration to be somewhere in the neighbourhood of 5 minutes and 53.84615384615384615384615384615 seconds. The catalogue boldly states it as 5'40", which I think is a little up-tempo. What's the hurry?

Watching TV is a good way to tear yourself away from the computer.
