    Yarım is uses for objects. Buçuk is uses for times. But both of them means 'half' For ex;

    Yarım ekmek. - Half bread.
    Bir buçuk saat. - One and half hour.
    Yarım patates. - Half potatoes.
    İki buçuk ay. - Two and half months

    But if the time is shorter than 1, you must use 'yarım'. For ex;

    Yarım gün. - Half day.
    Yarım yıl. - Half year.

    I hope it will be help you :)
