## What angle is 40 minutes on a clock?

At 40 minutes past any hour, the minute hand will be at 8 or 8*30 = **240 degrees** from 12 o’clock. At 4:40, the hour hand will be between 4 and 5 making an angle of 4*30 +30*40/60 = 120 + 20 = 140 degrees from 12 o’clock.

## How many degrees does a clock turn in 30 minutes?

In 30 minutes, the minute hand moves **180 degrees** which means the number if degrees per minute is 180 degrees divided by 30 minutes (degrees per minute).

## What angle is 5 o clock?

Now when the time is 5 o’clock, there are five sectors between the minute hand and the hour hand. ∴The angle between the minute hand and the hour hand at 5 o’clock is **150∘**.

## What degree is 1 o clock?

So the angle between the hands of a clock at 1 o’clock is **30°** . Note: It doesn’t matter whether we are talking about 1 am or 1 pm, the answer is exactly the same for both. The angle between the hands at 1 o’clock could also be given as the reflex angle 330°, but we will always give the smaller (acute or obtuse) angle.

## How many degrees does a clock turn in 20 minutes?

Answer: The minute hand moves the 60s per minute and a full rotation is 360Â° so: 360/60 = 6Â° per minute. So in 20 minutes, the minute hand will be 6 * 20 = **120Â°** and the hour hand will be 120/12 = 10Â°.
