How can createddate be larger than lastmodifieddate?

When a record is created and trigger executes (after insert)- updating a field, I want to calculate the time difference between the last modified date and the created date in seconds. If it's greater than 10 seconds, update the field as true else false. Can someone tell how to calculate in seconds?

The answer to your question - How can createddate be larger than lastmodifieddate is -

Returns the difference in the number of days - it's like yesterday- today - 1
If you multiply by 24 (24 hours a day ) returns the value in hours
then by 60 (60 minutes) returns the value in minutes
then again another 60 (60 seconds) returns the value in seconds
Difference in seconds
