# How many degrees does a minute hand of a clock turns through in 20 minutes?

## How many degrees does the minute hand of a clock go through for each time span?

Explanation: A analog clock is divided up into 12 sectors, based on the numbers 1–12. One sector represents 30 degrees (360/12 = 30). If the hour hand is directly on the 10, and the minute hand is on the 2, that means there are 4 sectors of 30 degrees between then, thus they are 120 degrees apart (30 * 4 = 120).

## How many degrees does the minute hand of a clock travel in 45 minutes?

How many degrees does the minute hand of a clock travel in 45 minutes in 50 minutes? The minute hand moves a full circle in 60 minutes (1 hour); so 360 degrees. 50 minutes is 5/6 of 60 minutes, so the hand moves 5/6 of 360 degrees = 300 degrees.

## How many degrees does the minute hand turn in a quarter of an hour?

At quarter past the hour, the minute-hand is exactly at 3:00 but the hour-hand has moved 1/4 of the way between 3:00 and 4:00. Therefore 1/4 times 1/12 = 1/48 of the clock. With the clock having 360 degrees, 360/48 = 7.5 degrees.

## How much angle hour hand rotates in 2 hours 20 minutes?

But at 20 past two, i.e., at 2 : 20, the hour-hand has moved 20 minutes towards 12. ∴ the angle between the two hands of the clock at twenty past two = 60° – 10° = 50°.

## What angle is 9 o clock?

At 9 o clock, the hour hand is at 9 and the minute hand is at 12. The angle between the two hands is 90 degrees.

## How much does a watch lose per day if its hand coincide every 64 minutes?

Solution(By Examveda Team)

=65511min. Lossin64min. =65511−64=1611min.

## At what time between 6 am and 7 am will the minute hand and the hour hand of a clock make an angle closest to 60?

Hence the closest to answer is 22 minutes, i.e. 6.22 am.
