Sometimes, it is called a sweep hand, but the hands on a clock usually are called hour, minute, and second.

The minute hand traces its path around the clock once in an hour. The distance travelled by the tip of the hand in this time is 2 x pi x 5cm.The speed is then 10pi cm/hour, which is 8.73 x 10-5 ms-1.

The answer is yes. An example which will support my contention is that of the tip of the minute-hand on an old-fashioned 'analog' clock. In the course of one hour's time, the tip of the minute hand traverses a distance equal to the circumference of the clock-face, but its displacement over the period of an hour is zero.

The full circle of the clock is 360 degrees. The distance between any two figures on the clock is therefore 360 ./. 12 = 30 degrees. When it's 6 o'clock there are six figures between the hour hand and the minute hand, so 6 x 30 = 180 degrees.

The time period of a nimute hand on the clock is one minute since it takes a minute for it to complete one oscillation, ie., one complete cycle of the clock.

Each minute on the clock is 1/60 of the 360 degree circle or 6 degrees. There are 20 minute lines between 12 and 4 therefore, 20 times 6 is 120 degrees.

The minute hand of a clock turns about 360 degrees each hour.

The minute hand is the largest hand on most analogue clocks. At 3 o'clock on a 12-hour clock, the minute hand is pointing straight up to the 12. It measures time to the nearest minute by advancing one of the small minute hash marks every 60 seconds. Every time the second hand makes one full sweep of the clock face, the minute hand advances one of the minute marks. The second hand is the fastest moving hand on a standard analogue clock, making one full sweep every 60 seconds.
