What's the meaning of one hundredth of a second?
I try to look it up on the online dictionary. And it gives an example.
She has knocked one/a hundredth of a second off the world record.
I am wondering if the example means she probably runs very fast and her speed of running is less than one hundredth of a second as compared with the world record. So that means she runs very fast anyway.
But I guess I still don't get it. Please give me a favor if possible. And please explains what's the meaning of the example 'She has knocked one/a hundredth of a second off the world record.'
I also found out that 'one hundredth of a second' is a movie name anyway. :P
Thanks in advance.
In my view,the more mistakes someone else corrects me,the more I could learn.
