We know that there are 12 numbers on the dial and minute hand moves by 1 number in five minutes. So, it will take 60 minutes(12 × 5 = 60) for the minute hand to complete one round on the dial.

## How long does it take the minute hand to go around the clock?

In one hour, the minute hand turns a full circle (that is, 360^{o}). This means that the hand moves with the speed of 360^{o} per hour. The hour hand moves much slower than that. In one hour, it only covers a 30^{o} angle (this is the angle between the two adjacent numbers that represent hours on the clock face).

## How long does a minute hand take to complete one round?

Minute hand completes 1 round in 12 hours.

## How many times does the minute hand rotates in a day?

There are 24 hours in a day . And the minute hand completes one rotation for every hour . That means the minute hand completes 24 rotations around the clock in a single day .

## At what time does the hour and minute hand meet?

We know that the minute and hour hand coincide every 65 minutes and not 60 minutes. Also, the hour and minute hand coincide only once between 11 and 1 o’clock i.e. at 12 o’clock. So, from both the above statements we can say that the two hands coincide exactly 11 times in a 12 hour span.

## How many times does the minute hand go around the clock in 24 hours?

it completes 60min =1hr. So minute hand moves 24 times around clock in one day.

## How many rotations of the minute hand are in 1 hour?

In one hour, the minute hand makes one revolution and the second hand goes round 60 times. This means that, in one hour, the second hand passes over the minute hand 60 – 1 = 59 times and the two are also in line (but with 180 degrees between them) 59 times.

## Which is the minute hand?

more … The large hand on a clock that points to the minutes. It goes once around the clock every 60 minutes (one hour). Example: in the clock on the left, the minute hand is just past the “4”, and if you count the little marks from “12” it shows that it is 22 minutes past the hour.

## When the time is half an hour the minute hand is at?

In half an hour, the minute hand completes only half of the round. This means minute hand takes 30 minutes to take half round of the face of the clock which is just half of the time taken by minute hand to complete 1 round. So, half an hour = 30 minutes. We can say the minute hand takes 30 minutes to come to 6.

## How many revolutions does the minute hand of a clock make between 3am and 5am?

There are 24 hours in a day . And the minute hand completes one rotation for every hour . That means the minute hand completes 24 rotations around the clock in a single day .

## How many minutes does the minute hand take to move from 12 round the clock face to 12 again?

For every rotation of the second hand, the minute hand will move from one minute mark to the next. The minute hand rotates more slowly around the dial. It takes one hour (sixty minutes) to make a complete rotation from 12 to 12.

## At what time between 4 and 5 o’clock will the minute hand and the hour hand coincide with each other?

Let the hands of the clock coincide after x minutes. So, the hands of a clock coincide 21.81 minutes past 4. Therefore, the correct answer is option B, 21.81 min.

## At what time are the hour and minute hand of a 12 hour clock together between 6 and 7?

In order to coincide the minute hand has to gain 30 minutes space. Now 55 minutes are gained by minute hand in 60 minutes. 30 minutes will be gained in = 6055×30=3611 = 32811 minutes. So the hands will coincide 32811 minutes past 6.

## How many times clock hands meet in a day?

After 11 o’clock, the minute hand has to travel all the way and by the time they meet it is has to be 12 o’clock again, since we know what the clock looks like at that time. So the two hands overlap 11 times in a 12 hour period. So, in a 24 hour period, they would overlap 22 times.
