## What is the angle between the hands of the clock when the time is 5 40?

Answer: At 40 minutes, the minute hand is at 8, or 30*8 = 240 deg from 12. The hour hand is between 5 and 6 and it makes an angle of 30*5 + 40*30/60 = 150+20 = 170 deg from.

## What is the measure of the smaller angle formed by the hands of a clock when they indicate 4 o clock?

## What is the angle between the two hands of a clock at 8 hours 20 minutes?

Find the angle between the minute and hour hand at 8:20 PM. Explanation: The distance between each notch on the clock is 6 degrees because there are 360 degrees on the clock, and there are 60 notches total. The minute hand is at notch #20, and so it is 120 degrees from the top.

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

## What is the angle made by the hour hand in 20 minutes?

Hence, for 20 min it rotates for 10 degrees. The angle between hr’s hand and min’s hand should be 10 deg. in every 60 minutes hour hand moves 30 degrees.

## What is angle between minute hand and hour hand of a clock at 5 40 pm?
