The time period of a nimute hand on the clock is one minute since it takes a minute for it to complete one oscillation, ie., one complete cycle of the clock.
The minute hand moves one complete circle in one hour. One complete circle is 360 degrees.l
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.
Every minute is six degrees. At 7:30, the hour hand has moved halfway between the 7 and 8. Call it 15 degrees.
That motion is called angular motion. The angular speed of the second hand is 2pi radians per minute.
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 )
Since there are 2 Pi radians in one complete turn, then the minute hand turns 1.75 * 2 Pi radians in 1.75 hours.
Short Hand- hour hand makes 2 rounds. Long hand - minute hand makes 24 rounds
Then it is a quarter to 11. Or 10:45.
The minute hand will be on the 6 and the hour hand on the 5. This is is somewhat like 5:30, but at 5:30, the minute hand would still point to the six but the hour hand would be midway between the 5 and 6. There is no time when the hour hand is on the 5 and the minute hand on the 6.
be back in a minute
Each minute on the clock is 1/60 of the 360 degree circle or 6 degrees. There are 20 minute lines between 12 and 4 therefore, 20 times 6 is 120 degrees.
The hour hand between 4 and 5. The minute hand at 6.
The hour hand between 8 and 9. The minute hand at 6.
Say you start at 12 o'clock. If the minute hand goes around the clock once in a complete circle, it turns to 1 o'clock. thus, the hour hand makes it a 30 degree angle.
Approximately 1:05 but not exactly.
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.
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.
The short hand is the hour hand. The longer hand is the minute hand. If there is a third hand, it is very thin and very fast. That would be the second hand.
