counter-clockwise It sounds as if you might be asking: How often are the hands of a clock pointing in opposite directions (at exactly 180 degrees)? If that is the question, the answer is: Over the course of a 24 hour day, it will happen 22 times. The reason it's not 24: It happens, usually, once after every hour. But, after 5, the next occurance is right at 6. Then, the next occurance is after 7. So you don't have 3 separate occurances after 5, after 6, and after 7. If this isn't what you meant, it was fun answering anyway.

in the opposite direction to the way in which the hands of a clock move around.
It's generally assumed that the direction clock hands move is derived from the movement of the shadow around a sundial. In the southern hemisphere, that movement is opposite from that of the northern hemisphere. If clockmaking had developed in Australia so that they became dominant in that craft, it is likely that clocks would be running in the opposite direction.
It's the opposite direction of the normal rotation of the hands of a clock. Looking at a clock face, the hands travel over the numbers 1,2,3,4 etc - counter-clockwise they's move in the reverse direction - 4,3,2,1 etc.
Turning something 'clockwise' would be turning it in the direction the hands on a clock turns. 'Counter-clockwise' would be turning it the opposite direction of a clock. I always remember anti-clockwise from clockwise, by which way a clock turns for clockwise, and the opposite way of a clock turning for anti-clockwise.
it refers to the way in which things move. clockwise means the direction that the hands on a clock turn. counter clockwise means the opposite way the hands turn on a clock
Clockwise is the direction that the hands turn on a clock. They turn from left-to-right. Counterclockwise is rotation in the opposite direction. (CW = -->, CCW= <--)
Referring to the direction of rotation, a clockwise direction indicates rotation in the same direction as the hands move on the face of a clock. Counterclockwise rotation is in the opposite direction.
All of the hands of a normal analog clock move in the "clockwise" direction.
The direction where the hands of a clock rotates.
It is the same as counter clock wise. The hands on a clock, starting from a position at the top of the clock-face, move in a circle to the right, so counter clock wise would be moving to the left, in the opposite direction.
Look at .... Hmmm. I was about to say a "clock", but then I look at my own desk and every clock is digital! With an analog clock, the hands move in a "clock-wise" direction, so counterclockwise is the opposite way. Make a fist with your right hand, and stick your thumb up. Look straight at your thumb. Your fingers curl around in a counter-clockwise direction.
Clock wise is the same way that the hands on a clock move ie looking straight at it a movement to the right.
It is anticlockwise (or counterclockwise), moving in the direction opposite to the hands of an ordinary clock. Most planets and moons (earth and its moon included) rotate in this direction as well.
They were made to go the same direction as sundials.
Hands of a clock move in a clockwise direction. Most hands move with pulses every second and minute, while some move smoothly without any pulses in between.
