9600 degrees an hour. Formula:degrees per min * minutes in an hour.

Answer: Two minutes Solution: 1) An hour hand takes 12 hours to revolve 360 degrees (one full circle) 2) One degree of revolution would be 1/360 of 12 hours 3) 12 hours = 720 minutes 4) 1/360 * 720 = 2 minutes

60 minutes = one whole circle = 360 degrees. That is, 1 minute = 360/60 = 6 degrees So 10 minutes = 10*6 = 60 degrees.

2880 degrees 1) One rotation of the minute hand is 360 degrees. 2) One rotation is completed in 1 hour. 3) So in 8 hours the minute hand will go through 8 x 360 degrees = 2880

At 6:30, the hour hand is at 195 degrees, the minute hand is at 180 degrees, the second hand would be at 0 degrees. The hour and minute hands would also be 15 degrees apart.

If the Earth rotates 15 degrees/hour, then 7.5 degrees is half of 15, so it takes half an hour or 30 minutes.

The hour hand moves 360 degrees in 12 hours so 6 degrees takes 0.2 hours = 12 minutes.

In a quarter hour, the minute hand moves 90 degrees because a quarter hour is fifteen minutes. 360/4 = 90.
