Military Time Converter - How it works...the Formula!

The formula below will help you to convert from standard to military time.

Convert from Standard to Military Time

If the hour in standard time is an "am" time:

  • If the hour is 12am, then it changes to 00.

e.g. 12:37am changes to 00:37

Otherwise

  • Military time is the same as Standard time.

Remember to add the preceding zero if the hour is less than 10. Remove the "am" label.


If the hour in standard time is a "pm" time:

  • If the hour is 12pm, then it stays the same.

Otherwise:

  • Add 12 to the number of hours. Remove the "pm" label.

Examples

4:30am = 04:30 (or 0430)   11:45am = 11:45 (or 1145)

12:32am = 00:32 (or 0032)   12:15pm = 12:15 (or 1215)

7:55pm = 19:55 (or 1955)   5:12pm = 17:12 (or 1712)

This formula will help you to convert from Military Time back to Standard Time.
