The 24-hour clock is a convention of time-keeping in which the day runs from midnight to midnight and is divided into 24 hours, numbered from 0 to 23. This system is the most commonly used time notation in the world of today. The United States and Canada are the only industrialized countries left in which a substantial fraction of the population is not yet accustomed to it.
