The date.getUTCSeconds() method is used to fetch the second according to universal time from a given Date object (returns a value ranging between 0 to 59).
Parameter: This method does not take any parameter. It is just used along with a Date Object from which we want to fetch the day of the week.
Return Values: It returns the second for the given date object according to universal time. Seconds is an integer value ranging from 0 to 59.
Note: In the above syntax, DateObj is a valid Date object created using the Date() constructor from which we want to fetch a second according to universal time.
Example 1: Below is an example of the Date getUTCSeconds() method.
Example 2: The date of the month should lie between 1 to 31 because none of the months have a date greater than 31 that is why it returns NaN i.e, not a number because the date for the month does not exist. The second will not be existed according to universal time if the date of the month does not exist.
Example 3: If a second is not given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCSeconds() method returns zero (0) according to universal time.
Example 4: If nothing as a parameter is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCSeconds() method returns the current second according to universal time.
Example 5: If a second outside the range [0,59] is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCSeconds() method returns 0 as an exception because the second’s range is in between 0 to 59 and 88 is out of this range.
