# Time Duration Calculator

This Time Duration Calculator instantly determines the time between two specified hours.

## Calculate Time Between Hours

Have you ever needed to quickly find the time difference between two timestamps? Whether you're tracking work hours, planning shift schedules, or managing project timelines, knowing the exact duration can be crucial.

This time elapsed calculator allows you to quickly compute how much time there is between two hours.

Let's walk through a manual example to illustrate how to calculate the time between two hours:

Start time: 9:45 AM End time: 2:30 PM

• From 9:45 AM to 10:00 AM: 15 minutes

• From 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM: 4 hours

• From 2:00 PM to 2:30 PM: 30 minutes

• Sum up all the time: 15 minutes + 4 hours + 30 minutes = 4 hours and 45 minutes

So, there are 4 hours and 45 minutes between 9:45 AM and 2:30 PM.

## How to Use the Time Duration Calculator

1. Input the Start Time: Enter the beginning time of your duration.

2. Input the End Time: Enter the ending time for your calculation.

With just these two inputs, our calculator will instantly display the time difference between the specified times.

This calculator works by utilizing a formula similar to =TIME(B3,C3,D3)-TIME(B2,C2,D2), where B2, C2, and D2 represent the hours, minutes, and seconds of the start time, and B3, C3, and D3 represent the hours, minutes, and seconds of the end time. This formula calculates the total duration between the two times by subtracting the start time from the end time.

## Why Use a Time Elapsed calculator?

This tool is perfect for a variety of business and personal applications. Here's how it can help you:

• Employee Time Tracking: Calculate work hours accurately for payroll and productivity analysis.

• Project Management: Determine the duration of tasks or meetings to optimize schedules.

## FAQ

### Can the calculator handle times that span across midnight?

Yes, our Time Duration Calculator can handle times that cross midnight. For example, if you input a start time of 22:00 and an end time of 2:00, it will correctly calculate the 4-hour difference.

### How do I calculate time differences in different time zones?

To calculate time differences across time zones, you'll need to convert both times to the same time zone first. Once you have both times in the same zone, you can use our calculator to find the duration.

### What's the difference between calculating time in hours and minutes versus decimal hours?

Our calculator provides results in both formats for your convenience. Hours and minutes (HH:MM) is the standard time format most people are familiar with. Decimal hours express time as a fraction of an hour, which can be useful for certain calculations, especially in business contexts. For example, 1 hour and 30 minutes would be expressed as 1.5 decimal hours.
