## What is the angular speed of the hour hand of a clock in rad s?

1 Expert Answer

On an analog (not digital) clock, the hour hand travels 360°, or **2π radians**, in 12 hours.

## What is the time period of second hand in a wall clock?

The second, or sweep, hand moves relatively quickly, taking a **full minute (sixty seconds)** to make a complete rotation from 12 to 12. For every rotation of the second hand, the minute hand will move from one minute mark to the next.

## Is Omega angular velocity?

**Angular velocity** is usually represented by the symbol omega (ω, sometimes Ω). By convention, positive angular velocity indicates counter-clockwise rotation, while negative is clockwise.

## What is angular velocity radians per minute?

“Angular velocity” is **a measure of turning per time unit**. It tells you the size of the angle through which something revolves in a given timespan. For instance, if a wheel rotates sixty times in one minute, then it has an angular velocity of 120π radians per minute.

## How often does the tip of an hour hand on a clock have the same velocity?

Answer: tip of an hour hand on a clock have the same velocity? **once every minute**; once every hour; once every 12 hours; once every 24 hours.

## Is the angular velocity of rotation of hour hand?

Hour-hand of a watch completes one rotation in 12 hours, while earth completes one rotation in 24 hours. So angular velocity of hour-hand is double the angular velocity of the earth. This is because **ω = 2 π T** , where T is the time taken to complete one rotation and ω is the angular velocity.

## What is relation between linear velocity and angular velocity?

We can write the relationship between linear velocity and angular velocity in two different ways: **v=rω or ω=v/r**.
