Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof. But before you tackle the big projects, we suggest you start by learning the basics. Kickstart your web development journey by learning JS concepts with our JavaScript Course. Now at it's lowest price ever!

  • Example: 
     

javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 15, 1996 05:35:32 UTC');
 
   // Second from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
 
   // Printing second according
   // to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>
  • Output: 
     
32

The date.getUTCSeconds() method is used to fetch the second according to universal time from a given Date object.
Syntax: 
 

DateObj.getUTCSeconds();

Parameter: This method does not takes 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 Date() constructor from which we want to fetch second according to universal time.
More codes for the above method are as follows:
Program 1: The date of the month should lie in 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. 
 

javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 33, 1996 05:35:32 UTC');
 
   // Second from above data object is
   // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
 
   // Printing second according to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 
 



NaN

Program 2: If second is not given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCSeconds() method returns zero (0) according to universal time. 
 

javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according
   // to universal  time while creating Date object
   var dateobj =
   new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35 UTC');
 
   // Second from above data object is
   // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
 
   // Printing second according to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 
 

0

Program 3: If nothing as parameter is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCSeconds() method returns current second according to universal time. 
 

javascript




<script>
   // Here nothing has been assigned according
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj = new Date();
 
   // Second from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
 
   // Printing current second
   // according to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 
 

41

Program 4: If second outside the range [0,59] is given to the Date() constructor while creating a Date object, the getUTCSeconds() method return 0 as exception because seconds range is in between 0 to 59 and 88 is out of this range. 
 

javascript




<script>
   // Here a date has been assigned according
   // to universal time while creating Date object
   var dateobj = 
   new Date('October 13, 1996 05:35:88 UTC');
 
   // Second from above date object is
   // being extracted using getUTCSeconds().
   var B = dateobj.getUTCSeconds();
 
   // Printing second according to universal time.
   document.write(B);
</script>

Output: 
 

0
