Who invented the 24-hour clock

The ancient Egyptians

The ancient Egyptians are seen as the originators of the 24-hour day. The New Kingdom, which lasted from 1550 to 1070 bce, saw the introduction of a time system using 24 stars, 12 of which were used to mark the passage of the night. Hours were of different length, however, as summer hours were longer than winter hours.

Why is an hour not 100 minutes

Who decided on these time divisions THE DIVISION of the hour into 60 minutes and of the minute into 60 seconds comes from the Babylonians who used a sexagesimal (counting in 60s) system for mathematics and astronomy. They derived their number system from the Sumerians who were using it as early as 3500 BC.

Does 24 00 exist

A day has 24 hours and starts with the first second at 00:00:00. So the 24 hours are finished with the completion of the last second, which starts at 23:59:59. The time 24:00:00 does not exist in the 24-hour system nor in the 12-hour system. The next second is the first second of the next day and therefore 00:00:00.

Why is 24 hours long

The Egyptians also divided the dark hours into 12 sections based on the appearance in the night sky of 12 stars as the night advanced. So with 12 hours of daylight and 12 of night, the 24 hour day was established. In this system, an hour of daylight in the summer would be longer than one in the winter.

What if a minute was 100 seconds

However. If we wanted to continue with the metric theme and introduce a 10 hour day. So that's 10 hours made up of 100 minutes made up of 100 seconds.
