# How many degrees does the minutes hand on an analog clock rotate in 15 minutes?

Forty five degrees.

### What does it mean to rotate an object to 90 degrees?

Colloquially, it means to give it a one quarter turn. Imagine taking a dial that currently points upwards, and rotating it to point rightward. That is a 90° rotation. Similarly, the amount by which the minute hand in an analog clock moves in fifteen minutes should be 90°. If you are looking to do this mathematically, the easiest way is to use a rotation matrix. In this case, you are rotating around the point 0…

### If the hour hand on a clock moves one half of a degree every minute how many degrees will the hand move in an 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.

### What are the differences between an analog and a digital clock?

Analog clock shows time passing by moving hands continuously. In contrast, digital clock shows the time numerically. By analog clock you can tell the time between graduations to some extent by the location of the hands because the hands move continuously. But by digital clock, you can not read other than the information shown. If it shows seconds as well, you can tell more precisely

### What does a clock look like?

There are three types of clock forms. FIRST TYPE: Digital Clock -- Says the hour:minutes am/pm. Example: 11:30am Example: 12:30pm SECOND TYPE: Analog clock that uses hands on a circular face to point at hours and minutes around the circumference of the clock face. The minutes are rarely marked on the clock face. The hours are often shown with the numbers 1 to 12 although some have only 3, 6, 9 and 12 shown.
