On a normal 12-hour clock, the minute hand moves thru 360° in 1 hour, 360° in 60 minutes, or 6° every minute. In ten seconds, the minute hand moves 1°.

What is the big hand on the clock called?

The long hand is called the minute hand, the shorter fat one is called the hour hand. Based on historical design the BIG hand is the hour hand because an hour is bigger than a minute. Function first, then form. Traditionally clocks had fatter hands for hour and thinner hands for minute, thus BIG is hour and LITTLE is minute. Yes the minute hand is usually longer than the hour hand but on most clocks the hour hand is larger not just shorter. Don't confuse long, big, little, and short.


Why is there a little hand and a big hand on the clock?

So that you can tell the time a bit more accurately. Long ago clocks just had one hand and you could tell the time roughly to the hour. Now we can tell the time to the minute.

Hour.


How many times does the long hand go around an hour?

We're assuming that you mean the "hands" on a clock. Short hand . . . the "hour hand", goes all the way around in 12 hours Long hand . . . the "minute hand", goes all the way around in 1 hour On some clocks, there's another long hand that you can see moving. That's the "second hand". It goes all the way around in 1 minute, 60 times in 1 hour.


If the minute hand is 6 inches long what is a good estimate of the circumference of the clock?

The minute hand will usually be about 1/8 inch from the edge of the clock face. The hand plus 1/8 inch is the radius, so the diameter of the clock face would be 12-1/4 inches (diameter is radius x 2). The formula for finding circumference is Pi x D, where Pi = 3.1416 and the D is the diameter. Using the formula C = Pi x D: C = 3.1416 x 12.25 = 38.4846 inches would be a good estimate of the circumference of the clock face.


How far does the tip of the minute hand of a clock move in 300 minutes if the hand is 7.3 inches long?

Zero. In five hours, the tip has traveled (5∙2pi∙7.3) or 229.34 inches but, it has returned to its original position.


Is the little hand on a clock the hour hand or minute hand?

The LITTLE hand is the minute hand. Little does not mean short, it means thin. The longer hand is the LITTLE hand. The BIG hand is the hour hand. Big does not mean long, it means fat, wider. The BIG hand is the hour hand because it denotes the larger unit of time measure. An hour is 60 times larger than a minute. So then, the LITTLE hand denotes the smaller unit of time, a minute. Somewhere along the way some not-too-bright primary school teacher didn't get it right and passed it along incorrectly and lots of people since then have totally missed the connection between BIG=HOUR and LITTLE=MINUTE.


If the minute hand on a clock is 4.5 centimeters long what distance does the tip travel in one complete rotation?

Minute hand is 4.5 cmTip of the minute hand completes one complete circle with radius 4.5 cmhence the distance traveled by the tip of minute hand is(2 * 22/7 * 4.5 ) ( circumference of the circle 2 pi R )


How far does the tip of the minute hand of a clock move in 225 minutes if the hand is 6.4 inches long?

in 225 minutes the minute hand cycles the clock 3.75 times. each time round the tip travels 2 pi x 6.4 which is 40.2 in to 3 significant figures. Therefore the total distance = 151 in (12 ft 7 in) to 3 significant figures or 48 pi if you want an exact answer


How far does the tip of the minute hand of a clock move in 300 minutes if the hand is 4.9 inches long?

Its in the same place 300/60 = 5 the hand has gone round the face of the clock five times. 2(pi) 4.9 = 30.787582 inches five times is 153.93791 inches


Is the little hand the hour hand on a clock?

No. The little hand is the minute hand. The big hand is the hour hand. The long hand is not the big hand, it is the little hand. The short hand is not the little hand, it is the big hand. Grab a dictionary and research the meaning of big, little, short, and long. The shorter hand is the "BIG" hand because it identifies the larger unit of time < hour >. The longer hand it the "LITTLE" hand because it identifies the smaller unit of time <minute>. If you have missed this part of the concept of measuring time then you have been listeniing to a misinformed moron who just taught school for the paycheck and did not understand what they were doing.
