There are two formats of timing used around the world which are 12 hours and 24 hours respectively. You can call them universal formats.
We are listening Am and Pm since our childhood and almost every one knows that after every 12 hours, Am and Pm change places but do we actually know what they really mean?
If no then let us share knowledge about timing with you.
12 hours time format is used worldwide because it is easier to remember rather than 24 hour format. We also call 12 hours format Kids special. So every one should have detailed knowledge about such things specially when you have questioning kids around. I also searched for this after my kid asked me about this otherwise i never cared about timings.
Now a days people are using many things but have no knowledge what they actually mean. It is always possible to gain knowledge about everything today and we should be thankful to technology and Google today. We have decided to share the knowledge of such things with every one.
Timing with Am and Pm
These words actually are from Latin Words. Latin words meridies (midday), ante (before) and post (after), the term ante meridiem (a.m.)means before midday and post meridiem (p.m.) means after midday.
