Normally the time is shown as Hours:Minutes
There are 24 Hours in a Day and 60 Minutes in each Hour.

Showing the Time

There are two major ways to show the time: "24 Hour Clock" or "a.m./p.m.".
  • With the 24 Hour Clock the time is shown as how many hours and minutes since midnight.
  • With a.m./p.m. (or "12 Hour Clock") the day is split into the 12 Hours running from Midnight to Noon (the AM hours) and the other 12 Hours running from Noon to Midnight (the p.m. hours).


Ante Meridiem*
Latin for "before midday"
Post Meridiem*
Latin for "after midday"
Midnight to Noon
Noon to Midnight
24 Hour Clock:
00:00 to 11:59
12:00 to 23:59
