If the hour hand on a clock moves one half of a degree every minute how many degrees will the hand move in an hour?

The hour hand on a clock will move 30 degrees every hour. (This assumes a "regular" clock and not a 24-hour clock.) The hour hand of a clock will move 360 degrees in 12 hours. That means it will move 360/12 degrees in one hour. That's 30 degrees in an hour. There are 60 minutes in an hour, so the hour hand will move 30/60 degrees in a minute. That's 0.5 degrees in a minute.


How many degrees does a hand clock move in an hour?

Hour hand moves 30 degrees, minute hand moves 360 degrees.


How many degrees does a clock make an minute?

The minute hand passes through 360 degrees in an hour and 6 degrees in a minute


Looking at a standard wall clock at the time 630 what is the anglein nearest degrees created by the minute hand and the hour hand?

The hour hand would be at 195 degrees and the minute hand at 180 degrees.


If the hour hand on a clock moves 1 60 degree every minute how many degrees will the hand move in one hour?

According to that, the hand will move 5/60 or 1/12. Every minute on a clock face is 6 degrees. An hour hand will move 30 degrees in an hour.


When looking at a standard clock at the time 6.30 what is the angle in nearest degrees created by the minute hand and the hour hand?

At 6:30, the hour hand is at 195 degrees, the minute hand is at 180 degrees, the second hand would be at 0 degrees. The hour and minute hands would also be 15 degrees apart.


What is the measure of the angle formed by the minute hand and the hour hand of a clock when the clock shows 300?

90 degrees


If an hour hand on the clock moves one 60th of a degree every minute how many degrees will the hand move in 1 hour?

On a standard analog 12 hour clock, it takes 720 minutes for the hour hand to go around the clock once (360 degrees), so every minute the hour hand advances by 1/2 of a degree, not 1/60th of a degree. The hour hand will advance by 1/12th of the full 360 degrees in one hour, which is 30 degrees.


How many degrees does the minute hand of a clock turn in one hour?

360 degrees.


What is the angle between the minute hand and the hour hand of a clock at half past two?

If we simply imagine the minute hand is on the 6, and the hour hand is on the two, there will be a total of 120 degrees between the minute and the hour hand, 1/3 of the clock is covered between the two hands. However, it is not that simple. Because 30 minutes has travelled, the hour hand will be half way between the 2 and the 3. We know that every hour, the hour hand moves 30 degrees (360 / 12 hours = 30). Therefore, in 30 minutes, it will have travelled 15 degrees. Which means the hour hand is 15 degrees closer to the minute hand. Therefore, the actual angle between the minute and hour hand is actually 105 degrees.

What Angle do the hour hand and the minute hand make when it is six o' clock?

The full circle of the clock is 360 degrees. The distance between any two figures on the clock is therefore 360 ./. 12 = 30 degrees. When it's 6 o'clock there are six figures between the hour hand and the minute hand, so 6 x 30 = 180 degrees.


If the hour hand on a clock moves 160th of a degree every minute how many degrees will the hand move in 1 hour?

On a normal 12-hour clock, the hour hand moves thru 360° in 12 hours, 360° in 720 minutes, or ½° every minute. In an hour's time, the hour hand moves 30°.


How many degrees does the minute hand of a clock turn in 10 minutes?

There are 360 degrees on the clock face that the minute hand travels in one hour which is 6 x 10 minutes. So the degrees turned by the minute hand in 10 minutes is 360/6 = 60


If the hour hand on a clock moves 160 of a degree every minute how many many degrees will the hand move in one hour?

On a normal 12-hour clock, the hour hand moves thru 360° in 12 hours, 360° in 720 minutes, or ½° every minute. In an hour's time, the hour hand moves 30°.


Looking at a standard wall clock at the time 630 what is the angle in nearest degrees created by the minute hand and hour hand?

It is 15 degrees.


How far does the minute hand move in fifteen minutes?

In fifteen minutes the minute hand of a clock will move 90 degrees, or three hour labels.


Looking at a standard wall clock at the time 6 30 what is the angle in nearest degrees created by the minute hand and the hour hand?

The angle between the hour hand and the minute hand on a standard clock at 6:30 is 15 degrees. Let's review the movement of the hands of the clock specific to this problem. The hour hand moves through the 12 hours of half a day in 12 hours (naturally), and that translates into the hour hand moving 360 degrees in 12 hours. That means the hour hand moves 360/12, or 30 degrees per hour. That translates into 15 degrees in half an hour. If the hour hand is pointing straight down at 6:00 (which it is), it will move 15 degrees from where it was in half and hour. And the time will be 6:30 with the minute hand pointing straight down. The minute hand will be pointing to where the hour hand was half an hour ago. And, as stated, the hour hand will have moved from dead on the six and gone 15 degrees further around.


How many degrees does the minute hand of a clock turn in half an hour?

Since an analog clock covers 360 degrees in a full hour, it covers 180 in half an hour because 180 - 0.5*360.


The hour hand on a clock move 160 of a degree every minute how many degrees will it move in a hour?

On a normal 12-hour clock, the hour hand moves 360° in 12 hours, 360° in 720 minutes, or ½° every minute, not 1/60°. In one hour, 60 minutes, a normal 12-hour clock's hour hand will move 30°.
