## How many degrees does the minute hand of a clock turn through in 30 minutes?

Explanation: A analog clock is divided up into 12 sectors, based on the numbers 1–12. One sector represents 30 degrees (360/12 = 30). If the hour hand is directly on the 10, and the minute hand is on the 2, that means there are 4 sectors of 30 degrees between then, thus they are 120 degrees apart (30 * 4 = 120).

**How many degrees does the minute hand turn through when it moves from 1 to 4?**

=270° Ans.

**How far does the minute hand move in one hour?**

The MINUTE hand moves 360 degrees in an hour.

### How many degrees does the hour hand turn in 20 minutes?

The minute hand moves 60s per minute and a full rotation is 360Â° so: 360/60 = 6Â° per minute. So in 20 minutes the minute hand will be 6 * 20 = 120Â° and the hour hand will be 120/12 = 10Â°.

**How long is the minute hand of a clock if it is 7 cm longer than the hour hand and the distance between the tips of the hands at 9 00 is 13 cm?**

So, the the distance covered by the minute arm will be the arc from 9:00 to 9:30. The displacement will be the diameter of the swept area of the minute arm which will be 14 cm, The, distance will be π*r where r is the radius or the length of the minute arm. On solving we will get distance to be 22/7*7 = 22 cm.

**What angle does the minute hand of a clock turn in 20 minutes?**

Answer: The minute hand moves the 60s per minute and a full rotation is 360Â° so: 360/60 = 6Â° per minute. So in 20 minutes, the minute hand will be 6 * 20 = 120Â° and the hour hand will be 120/12 = 10Â°.

#### What’s the angle of the minute hand on the clock?

The minute hand on the clock will point at 15 minutes, allowing us to calculate it’s position on the circle. Since there are 12 hours on the clock, each hour mark is 30 degrees.

**How many degrees does hour hand of clock move in a second?**

The hour hand moves 360 degrees / 12 in an hour = 30 degrees. It follows that in a minute it moves 30 degrees / 60 = 1/2 degree. Therefore in a second it moves 1/2 degrees / 60 = 1/120 degree. Or perhaps the clock is not designed like that. When you see the second hand of a clock move, it doesn’t always move continuously.

**How to find the angle of clock hands-SAT math?**

If the hour hand is directly on the 10, and the minute hand is on the 2, that means there are 4 sectors of 30 degrees between then, thus they are 120 degrees apart (30 * 4 = 120). At , what angle is between the hour and minute hand on a clock?

## Is the angle of a clock always 6 degrees?

A clock is a circle, and a circle always contains 360 degrees. Since there are 60 minutes on a clock, each minute mark is 6 degrees.
