What is a 24-Hour Clock?

There are two types of clocks, 12-hour clocks and 24-hours clocks. In the 24-hour clock format, each day runs from midnight to midnight and is divided into 24 hours.

24-Hour Time uses the numbers 00:00 (midnight) until 23:59 to tell the time. You don’t need to use am/pm with a 24-Hour Clock, as the afternoon is indicated by a number more significant than 12.

24-Hour Time is commonly used as a format on digital clocks.

It differs from 12-hour time, which uses two cycles of 12 hours in the morning (am) and afternoon (pm). Instead, this runs from 1 am to 12 noon and from 1 pm to 12 midnight.

12-hour time can be read on analog clocks. These are clocks with an entire clock face and three hands – an hour hand, a minute hand, and one to count the seconds.
