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.
