Best Answer

Basketball is not like football. There are 12 minutes in a quarter and there are 4 quarters. That is a total of 48 minutes. During those 48 minutes the players are playing the game and there is plenty of action. The clock is not running during time outs and when free throws are being shot. So, there is action when the clock is running and it runs for 48 minutes.

How long does each quarter last in afl?

An AFL quarter is 20 minutes of actual play. However the clock is stopped several times during a quarter for things such as returning the ball to the centre after a goal. Ball ups when the ball takes a long time to get to the field umpire, significant injuries to players (especially if a stretcher is required). From siren to siren a quarter is around 30 minutes long but anywhere from 26 to 33 is not unusual.

What is a bugdet?

A budget is an amount of money allocated to a specific task, department or item. In example, the marketing budget for the first quarter of the financial year is $500,000. The actual marketing cost for the first quarter of the financial year was $450,000; therefore when comparing the budget to the actual cost, you find that the marketing department operated at $50,000 favourable for the first quarter. Budgets allocate money, but in comparison to the actual costs incurred, they can also be used as a monitoring and measuring tool for effectiveness and efficiency of the department.

How long is a water polo game?

Water polo games are divided into four quarters. The length of each quarter depends on the level: FINA Water Polo World League, Olympic and US College water polo games consist of 8 minutes per quarter, so 36 minutes of game time. US high school games vary, with varsity games consisting of 7 minutes per quarter, junior varsity games 6 minutes per quarter and freshman/sophomore games 5 minutes per quarter, so 28, 24 or 20 minutes of game time. When the ball is not being played (between a foul and free throw or between a goal and restart), the clock is stopped, so in reality an average quarter lasts a lot longer (usually between twice to three times the actual playing time) than the times above.
