These worksheets help students learn to read both analog and digital clocks. What Is the Difference Between Analog and Digital Clocks? You might have heard; time is the most precious thing you have in this world. Also, it doesn’t wait for anybody. Therefore, each one of us needs to keep track of time. However, the fun part about time is that you can view it on two different types of clocks. One is Analog, and the other is a digital clock. Both these clocks are used to read the time. But there is a difference between the two clocks. If you didn’t know about it, let’s find it out: Analog Clock: An Analog clock uses circuits in which voltage or current flow variable at a continuous rate. An analog clock features hands, known as clock hands, that represents the time. These clock hands spin around the dial and point to a number as time passes by, which represents the approximate time of the day. Digital Clock: In a digital clock, quantities are counted rather than measured. And when you count something, you get the exact results. A digital clock tells you the exact time. It saves you the hassle of figuring which clock hand is on which number.
