What is Standard Time?

Standard time, also known as the 12-hour clock, is the more common time format used in everyday life. It divides the day into two 12-hour periods: AM (ante meridiem) for the morning hours and PM (post meridiem) for the afternoon and evening hours. Standard time uses the numbers 1 to 12 to represent the hours, with AM and PM indicators. For example:

  • 1:00 AM
  • 1:00 PM
  • 6:45 AM
  • 6:45 PM

Standard time is the standard format for daily activities, such as meetings, appointments, and personal schedules. It’s familiar to most people and is used in digital and analog clocks worldwide.

When to Use Each Format

The choice between military time and standard time depends on the context and personal preference. Here are some instances when each format is commonly used:

  • Military Time:
