Consider e.g. the number 24^24*55^55.
This number ends with exactly 55 zeros as the following demonstrate

In[201]:= Mod[24^24*55^55, 10^55]
Mod[24^24*55^55, 10^56]

Out[201]= 0
Out[202]= 20000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

What I want now is a way to count the zeros that a number ends without
knowing in advance this number of zeros like in the above example.

Thanks in advance.
