When do I need to use 秒钟 (miǒu zhōng) instead of 分钟 (fēn zhōng)?

秒钟 (miǒu zhōng) is used to refer to a unit of time that is equal to one sixtieth of a minute. It is used when referring to a very short amount of time, such as when counting down the seconds before something happens. For example, when counting down the seconds before a rocket launch, one would use 秒钟 (miǒu zhōng).
In contrast, 分钟 (fēn zhōng) is used to refer to a unit of time that is equal to sixty seconds. It is used when referring to a longer amount of time, such as when counting the minutes in an hour. For example, when counting the minutes in an hour, one would use 分钟 (fēn zhōng).
