The minute hand of a clock turns about 360 degrees each hour.

90 degrees

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.

15 degrees. Minute hand is pointing to the 6 and the hour hand halfway between 6 and 7, which themselves are 30 deg apart.

24 times. When the minute hand lines up with the hour hand that is 0 degrees. This happens every hour.

The minute hand of a clock turns about 360 degrees each hour.

The hour hand on a clock will move 30 degrees every hour. (This assumes a "regular" clock and not a 24-hour clock.) The hour hand of a clock will move 360 degrees in 12 hours. That means it will move 360/12 degrees in one hour. That's 30 degrees in an hour. There are 60 minutes in an hour, so the hour hand will move 30/60 degrees in a minute. That's 0.5 degrees in a minute.

Hour hand moves 30 degrees, minute hand moves 360 degrees.

The minute hand passes through 360 degrees in an hour and 6 degrees in a minute

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

90 degrees

According to that, the hand will move 5/60 or 1/12. Every minute on a clock face is 6 degrees. An hour hand will move 30 degrees in an hour.

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.

360 degrees.

It moves through 360 degrees

On a standard analog 12 hour clock, it takes 720 minutes for the hour hand to go around the clock once (360 degrees), so every minute the hour hand advances by 1/2 of a degree, not 1/60th of a degree. The hour hand will advance by 1/12th of the full 360 degrees in one hour, which is 30 degrees.
