clocks got minute hands for the first time in 1680.

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. It measures time to the nearest minute by advancing one of the small minute hash marks every 60 seconds. 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.

the answer is 5:20

the small hour hand will be on the 7 and the small minute hand will be on the 1

nine oclock and six oclock

The minute hand revolves around the clock face ONCE every hour. Therefore the hand would revolve around the clock 24 time in one day.

add a second minute hand. If you could add a second minute hand to an analog clock, you would be able to increase the precision by allowing the time to be determined to the second.

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

The answer is yes. An example which will support my contention is that of the tip of the minute-hand on an old-fashioned 'analog' clock. In the course of one hour's time, the tip of the minute hand traverses a distance equal to the circumference of the clock-face, but its displacement over the period of an hour is zero.
