Hour.

long hand (min) on the 12 and the short hand (hour) on what ever hour it is

Yes it is. The short hand is the hour hand. fo all you simple minded people out there

The long hand makes one complete revolution around the clock in one hour. It travels 360 degrees in rotation, or 2 pi radians. The tip of the long hand travels 2 pi inches per inch of length of the hand. The center of the long hand ( pivot point) does not move at all, but travels 2 pi radians in rotation.

Short Hand- hour hand makes 2 rounds. Long hand - minute hand makes 24 rounds

It travels once around the clock per hour. (It rotates 360 degrees.)

The short fat hand

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.

It depends on how big the clock is. If it is a big clock, then the hand moves faster than one that is in a small clock because the markings would be further apart.

As in any other clock, the Big Ben hands have different sizes: -The hour hand is 9ft (2.7m) long. -The minute hand is 14ft (4.25m) long. +++ Big Ben is not the clock, nor the tower, but the hour bell.

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.

it takes five minutes from one hand to move to another hand on the clock.
