1/2 rotation

## How much angular distance will be covered by the minute hand of a correct clock in a period of 2 hour 20 minutes?

Answer: 20 minutes is 1/3 of an hour, so 2 hr 20 mins is 2.333 hours converting is to a more useful decimal value. So the sweep of the minute hand for that period is 2.333 x 360 or 840 degrees. In radians it’s (2π × 840)/360 = 14.66 rads.

## What is the angular displacement of an hour hand after 5 minutes?

Explanation: It takes an hour ( 60 minutes) for the minute’s hand to turn a full circle or achieve an angular rotation of 2πrad . There are 605=12 periods of five minutes in an hour. Meaning that the five-minute rotation accounts for 112 of 2π , the rotation of the minute’s hand in an hour.

## How much angular distance will be covered by the minute hand?

It is simple: In 60 minutes, the minute hands makes a full revolution of 360 degrees. So in 20 minutes it revolves one third, or 120 degrees. It is simple: In 60 minutes, the minute hands makes a full revolution of 360 degrees. So in 20 minutes it revolves one third, or 120 degrees.

## How much is the angular distance between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn?

Solution. The angular distance between Tropic of Cancer and the equator is 23°30’and that between Tropic of Capricorn and the equator is 23°30′.

## How do you find the angle traced by hour hand?

Correct answer: 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 times are the hands of a clock at 180 degrees?

In a day the hands of a clock are at 180 degrees for 24 times.
