The clock is divided into 12 hours. The hour hand moves 1/12th every hour. If the clock is likened to a circle of 360 degrees, each hour would represent 360 / 12 = 30 degree…s. (MORE)

22 times. hour hand meets minute hand each hour. Example : they meet at about 1h6, 2h17,... ( it's not exactly). But the 11th hour, they don't meet any times. So in a round of… hour hand, it meets minute hand only 11 times and 22 times in a day (MORE)

The hour hand is 2.7 metres (9 ft) long and the minute hand is 4.3 metres (14 ft) long. See the Related Link.

55 min. spaces are gained by minute hand in 60 min period. to find how many spaces it has actually gained, we need to fix a standard point first..!! with respect to it, we nee…d to see the difference by how much is it actually varying..!! so let us assume the standard point to be the place where the minutes hand and hours hand has been coincided..!! i may be 12:00 ,1.06, 2.11,3.17...etc..from there..60 minutes implies the minute hand must come back to the same point where it has started..!! is it not..?? now, 60 minute passed and so minute hand covers 60 minute spaces. And the hour hand advances by 5 minute spaces..!! so from the standard point fixed initially (we assumed the standard point is where the minute point and hours hand were coinciding..also..60 minutes will be passed when the minute hand comes back to the same position from where it started) now, there is an absolute 60 min spaces covered by minute hand in 60 min and then there is 5 min spaces advanced by hour hand in 60 min period..!! so on total.. total advancement is 60-5 = 55 minute spaces..!!

Angular velocity = angle covered / time taken Hence angular velocity of the hour hand = 2pi/ 12*3600 = 1.4 x 10-4 rad/s

On a clock, the longer hand is the minute hand and the shorter hand is the hour hand. Also, the especially thin one that moves the fastest is the second hand.

Answered

30 degrees 360 degrees is how much the minute hand moves in an hour.

Answered

The LITTLE hand is the minute hand. Little does not mean short, it means thin. The longer hand is the LITTLE hand. The BIG hand is the hour hand. Big does not mean long, it me…ans fat, wider. The BIG hand is the hour hand because it denotes the larger unit of time measure. An hour is 60 times larger than a minute. So then, the LITTLE hand denotes the smaller unit of time, a minute. Somewhere along the way some not-too-bright primary school teacher didn't get it right and passed it along incorrectly and lots of people since then have totally missed the connection between BIG=HOUR and LITTLE=MINUTE.

So you can tell which is which; example if one is on the 1 and the other is on the 2, if the hands were same length it could be 10 past 1, or 5 past 2. And s…o on ... (MORE)

20c + 5 = 5c + 65 Divide through by 5: 4c + 1 = c + 13 Subtract c from both sides: 3c + 1 = 13 Subtract 1 from both sides: 3c = 12 Divide both sides by 3: c = 4 20c + 5 = 5c …+65 20c - 5c= 65 - 5.
15c = 60.
15c/15 = 60/15.
c = 4 (alternative method). (MORE)
