Best Answer

The long hand makes one complete revolution around the clock in one hour. It travels 360 degrees in rotation, or 2 pi radians.

The tip of the long hand travels 2 pi inches per inch of length of the hand. The center of the long hand ( pivot point) does not move at all, but travels 2 pi radians in rotation.

Depends on how long you travel for.

One twelfth of a circle, which is 30 degrees or pi/6 radians.

As long and as far as your gas, water, food, and interest hold out.

50 miles per hour.

You have to give the duration of the journey. In 1 hour it will travel 24.8 miles.

It travels once around the clock per hour. (It rotates 360 degrees.)

If both started at 12, in forty minutes, the minute hand would reach the 8 mark on the clock. The 8 mark symbolizes 8 hours past 12. So it would take 8 hours for the hour hand to travel as far as the minute hand travels in 40 minutes.

well it can travel at 32kmph

The distance depends on how far the relevant point on the minute hand is from its point of rotation. This is because the motion of the minute hand is angular, not linear.
