see you in an hour. Of course it takes more than an hour for the hour hand (the "BIG" hand) and the minute hand (the "LITTLE" hand) to line up but it does happen once each hour. Keep in mind, the hour hand is known as the BIG hand because an hour is bigger than a minute, which is indicated by the LITTLE hand.

The short one Yes, the hour hand is traditionally shorter than the minute hand. However, the hour hand is known as the BIG hand because an hour is bigger than a minute. That means the minute hand is known as the LITTLE hand since a minute is LITTLE when compared to an hour. This is the historical explanation of the labels for the two hands, based on function an expressed in form by the hour hand having a broader, albeit shorter, design than the minute hand which is longer but narrower. Hour = bigger than minute = the BIG hand Minute = smaller than hour = the LITTLE hand

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.

A minute contains 1/60th of an hour.
