Standard Time (12-hour clock, AM/PM) vs Military Time Clock?

Standard Time and Military Time formats are two different ways to measure time. Standard Time uses a 12 hour clock with am or pm to denote the time of day, while Military Time uses a 24 hour clock. In Standard Time, midnight is represented as 12:00am, whereas in Military Time it is represented as 0000 digits. The difference between them is that the same moment in Standard Time can be expressed differently than in Military Time; for example, 7:00 pm, (7 o’clock) can also be expressed as 19:00 in Military Time. Additionally, each region has its own local time, in relation to Greenwich mean time, which is based on its longitude and the position of the sun at noon. It is important to note that when traveling across different time zones, both Standard and Military Times will vary. Being familiar with both systems can help you keep track of the correct time of day no matter where you are.
