## How many revolutions does the minute hand on a clock make in a day?

There are 24 hrs in a day so each 12 hrs one revolution, so in 24 hrs there will be **two revolutions**.

## What fraction is a clockwise revolution 3 9?

**1/2** revolution is covered when the hour hand goes from 3 to 9 in the clockwise direction.

## What is difference between rotation and revolution?

“Rotation” refers to an object’s spinning motion about its own axis. “Revolution” refers the **object’s orbital motion around another** object. For example, Earth rotates on its own axis, producing the 24-hour day. Earth revolves about the Sun, producing the 365-day year.

## How many times will be minute hand rotates in one 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.

## How many times will minute hand and hour hand coincide in one day?

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. times. So, the number of times the two hands coincide in a day is 22 times.

## How many revolutions does a clock hand make in a year?

How many revolutions does the hour hand on a clock make a year? It takes 12 hours for the hour hand of a clock to make one complete revolution. Therefore, in a time span of 24 hours; the hour hand will undergo (24 / 12) = **2 revolutions**. Assuming that the dial is a 12 hour dial, it will make two complete revolutions.

## What fraction of a clockwise revolution does the hour hand of a clock turn through when it goes from 12 to 3?

Therefore the fraction covered by the clockwise movement of the hour hand from 12 to 9 is **34**.

## Where will the hand of a clock stop if it starts at 12 and makes 1/2 of a revolution clockwise?

Explanation: In one complete revolution, the clock hand moves 360° or 12 hours. A) If the clock hand starts at 12 and makes 1/2 of a revolution, it would stop after 6 hours, that is, at **6 o’clock**.

## Where will the hand of a clock stop if it starts at 3 and makes 3/4 of a revolution clockwise?

(d) starts at 5 and makes 3/4 of a revolution, clockwise? rotate by 180 degree and hence, it will stop at **6**. rotate by 180 degree and hence, it will stop at 8. rotate by 90 degree and hence, it will stop at 8.

## What fraction of a clockwise revolution does the hour?

(d) the situation from 12 to 9 on the clock, the hour hand turns **3/4** of a revolution, clockwise.
