What is a minute hand on a clock?

The minute hand is the largest hand on most analogue clocks. At 3 o'clock on a 12-hour clock, the minute hand is pointing straight up to the 12.

Every time the second hand makes one full sweep of the clock face, the minute hand advances one of the minute marks. The second hand is the fastest moving hand on a standard analogue clock, making one full sweep every 60 seconds.

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.

There are 360 minutes between the twelve and the six on a clock. Half of 360 is 180. This only works for times ON THE HOUR, otherwise, the hour hand moves for every minute of time passing.
