Below is an hours calculator. Use the easy-to-enter inputs and enter a starting time and an ending time, then hit the 'Calculate' button. We'll add up the number of hours (up to 23 hours and 59 minutes maximum).

## Using the Hours Calculator

To use the tool to find the hourly difference in two times, enter

**Start time:**Enter when the activity or time-span began**End time:**Enter the time to end the calculation

Next, click the blue 'Calculate Difference in Hours' button. We'll then do the math on the time-span between the two times you give us, assuming they both occurred in less than 24 hours (that is, 23 hours and 59 minutes is the maximum span).

**Hours Between:**A count of the minutes and hours betweenthe start and end time you entered in the tool.

### Is Noon AM or PM? Is Midnight AM or PM?

Traditionally, **12:00 PM is noon** and **12:00 AM is midnight**.

### What if the time-span crosses midnight (the start time is later than end time)?

The tool has no issue calculating times which go overnight and cross midnight. Enter any time-frame less than 24 hours and it can do the math.

## Hours Between Two Times

This tool is most often used to calculate the length of a shift. Especially when a shift is overnight, it can be tricky to calculate the number of hours total. The hours between calculator clears up that trickiness and makes it easy to compute time-spans that cross noon and midnight.

The calculator is also great to plan and prepare with activities later in the day. Justenter the current time and when the event starts and we'll tell you how long you have left to get ready.

Hopefully the tool is useful to show the time duration when entering a start and end time. We look forward to see how you use the hours calculator – enjoy!

## How to calculate hours between times?

This simple online tool makes it easy to calculate the difference in hours and minutes between two given times. To calculate the hours and minutes contained in a time period you need to know its beginning and end. The hours calculatorwill use the time format depending on your browser locale settings, e.g. US, UK.

After you enter the beginning and the end of the time period you are interested in, you simply click the "Calculate difference" button. Below you will get the difference in both full hours and in minutes. If the first hour you enter is later in the day than the second hour you enter, the time difference is calculated as if the first hour is for today and the second is tomorrow. Forexample, entering a start time of 6PM and end time of 8AM in the calculator, it will calculate the difference in hours, minutes, and seconds from 6PM today to 8AM tomorrow (14 hours).

This calculator for the number of hours between two times could be used to find out for how long you have worked in order to fill in time sheets. **For example,** how many hours are there between 9 and 5:30 pm (or 9:00 and 17:30)? You simply need to enter the two times in any order and click on"Calculate". The result will be 8 hours 30 minutes (8:30 hours or 8.5 hours in decimal) or 510 minutes. There are 8 full hours between these times. It also supports the subtraction of lunch breaks and other types of pauses from the total hours in between. For more on that see lunch breaks.

## How many hours?

Manypeople working a job with regular hours want to find out the duration of their work day. If you're also wondering "how many hours am I working?" and you are on a 9AM to 5PM job, then the question is how many hours is 9 to 5. The answer is exactly eight hours.

If you leave your kids early at school and pick them up in the afternoon, you might wonder how much time they spend in school each day. If you leave them at 7AM and pick them up at 3PM then the question is how many hours is 7AM to 3PMand the answer is eight hours (15-7 = 8).

Here are some more examples of calculating how many hours are between two specified points in time. You can use our **hours calculator** above to compute the time between any two arbitrary hours and minutes.

Start Time - End Time | Time Between |
---|---|

9AM to 5PM | 8:00 |

7AM to 5PM | 9:00 |

8AM to 4PM | 8:00 |

8AM to 8PM | 12:00 |

8AM to 6PM | 10:00 |

9AM to 5:30PM | 8:30 |

7:30AM to 4:30PM | 9:00 |

### Working hours with lunch break excluded

If you are using our calculator to understand how many hours you are working, then you need to use the functionality which allows the subtraction of a lunch break or other types of shift breaks to get just the **number of working hours**. For example, a 7:30 to 4:30 work day with a 30 minute lunch break means an 8.5 hour work day (9 hours in between, minus 30 minutes or 0.5 hours equals8.5). If you are working shifts your break may not be a lunch break, and you may also have multiple breaks allowed. In such a case add up the total amount of time off and enter it in the field (in minutes).

The ability to specify the total break time is also useful if calculating physical activity with break intervals, e.g. an intensive training for one hour followed by a 15 minute break and then another hour of exercise.

## American vs. European time

The way Europeans and Americans tell time is different, both in the way it is said and in the way it is written. Civilians in America use the hours until 12 two times in a day, while Europeans go between 00:00 and 23:59. For this reason in America people would use pm and am to distinguish what half of the day they are talking about. On the other hand, most Europeans would probably say 15:00 o’clock (instead of 3 pm). To make it evenmore complicated for guests from overseas though, many Europeans would also say 3 in the afternoon.

If you are new to Europe and need to deal with **"military time"**, all you have to do is use the hours until 12 in the same way and for after 1 pm either add or subtract 12, putting pm after the result. **For example,** if you are meeting someone at 17:30, that would be 17:30 – 12 = 5:30 pm. If you need to find out what to writeto a colleague you want to meet at 2pm, this would be 2 + 12 = 14 pm.

For the sake of accuracy, it should be noted that, although similar to it, European time telling is not exactly military time. In the military 18:00 (6 pm) would be 1800. In one case it is "eighteen o’clock", in the other it is "eighteen hundred". In the military 7:00 (7 am) would be "zero seven hundred" or "oh seven hundred" (0700), while civilians in Europe would just say "seven". The strictermilitary way of communicating time is necessitated by the critical conditions in which it is used. Mistaking the hour or minute of an action could result in lost lives...

### How many hours is Day 1?

Day LengthThat is called a solar day. On Earth, a solar day is around 24 hours. However, Earth's orbit is elliptical, meaning it's not a perfect circle. That means some solar days on Earth are a few minutes longer than 24 hours and some are a few minutes shorter.

### How do I calculate my hours?

To find the total hours, subtract the time the employee clocked in from when they clocked out.

### How many hours is 2 days 3 hours?

Answer. 48 hours + 3 hours = 51 hours. So 2days 3hours = 51hours.

### What are the hours from 8 to 5?

How many hours from 8 am to 5 pm? 9 hours.
