Digestion is a slow process. Everyone is different. The official length of time is 36 hours!! I don't think that it can be that exact though!!!

Two to four hours. Chronic and systemic constipation can cause a blockage that extends the time it takes for the stomach to empty. If you find this is beginning to happen to you, eat vegetables and drink water, nothing else until it clears up. Include pickles in that and no starchy vegetables. If this doesn’t solve the problem, see your doctor. You have a very serious problem.

That really depends on the composition of the meal.
If it is predominantly meat and fat the strong acids and enzymes in the stomach will break it down into a slurry or chime in about 15–20 minutes enabling its complete absorption by the body in very short order.
If your meal contains cellulose and other indigestible plant products it can take 12–24 hours to eliminate it with virtually none of it contributing any nutrients to our body.
Some plant material can pass right through the body and emerge unchanged. Sweet corn??
