Well, the minute hand traverses 360 degrees in 1 hour.

Or 360 degrees/60 minutes = 6 degrees per minute.

So 12 minutes = 6 x 12=*72 degrees in 12 minutes*.

[Remember 15 minutes = 90 degrees.]

### How do you calculate the angle that forms on a clock for every minute that it passes through?

Clocks are 360 degrees, them being basically a circle on their
face, and it is separated into 60 different margins. This equals
6 degrees of rotation per minute.
Then you just simply multiply by how many minutes that have
passed and you will come out with the angle.

### What is the angle at which the minute hand of a clock rotates over a period of twelve minutes?

12 minutes is 1/5th of an hour. The minute hand sweeps 360
degrees - a full circle - in one hour. So the angle formed by the
start and stop of a 12-minute sweep of the minute hand would be
1/5th of 360 degrees or 72 degrees.

### C code to find angle between hour hand and minute hand?

Lets start by thinking of a clock as a circle, with directly up
being 0 degrees. At 12:00, both hands are at 0 pointing straight
up. Every 60 minutes, the minute hand will make a complete
revolution, so at any given time its angle is:
minute_deg = minute * 360 / 60 = minute * 6;
The hour hand will make a complete revolution every hour, so its
formula is:
hour_deg = hour * 360 / 12 = hour * 30;
