A lot of people get confused by the usage of military time. Some questions that may pop into inquiring mind include “are there sixty minutes in a military hour?” and “why do people use it?” The 24-hour clock is widely used and more popular than you may think. Believe it or not, it’s the most widely used time notation in the entire world. In addition to being an international standard, it’s commonly used in medical practices. It is written in a 24-hour notation in hours and minutes, in which the hours span from 0 to 23. For example, 9:30pm would translate to 21:30.
