## How many degrees does a minute hand move per minute?

Therefore the minute hand’s rate is 360 degrees per 20 seconds or 18 degrees per second.

## How many degrees an hour do you rotate your hand in 1 minute?

The minute hand moves 360 degrees in 60 minute(or 6 degrees in one minute) and hour hand moves 360 degrees in 12 hours(or 0.5 degrees in 1 minute).

**How many degrees does an hour hand move in 1 hour?**

Hint:As we know that the hour hand of the clock makes ${360^ \circ }$in 12 hours. So, in 1 hour, the hour hand moves ${30^ \circ }$.

**How many degrees does a minute hand move in 8 minutes?**

So, the minute hand turns 360° to complete 60 minutes. Therefore, the minute hand turns (360/60×8) ° in 8 minutes, which means the minute hand turns 48° in 8 minutes. Every hour it traverses 360degrees => 6degrees/minute.

### How many degrees does the minute hand rotate in 25 minutes?

This means that each minute represents 360 ÷ 60 = 6 degrees. Between 3:20 and 3:45, 25 minutes go by, so the minute hand rotates 25 × 6 = 150 degrees.

### How many degrees does the hour hand turns through in 5 hours?

Each hour is 112 of a complete circle for the hour hand (on a standard 12 hour clock). 5 minutes is 112 of an hour. So in 5 minutes, the hour hand moves 112⋅112=1144 of a complete circle.

**How many degrees does the hour hand move in 10 minutes?**

In a clock the Hour hand moves 360/12 = 30 degrees every hour. Hence it will move ( 30 / 60) = 1/2 degrees /min. Hence 10 x 1/2 = 5 deg it will take to move in 10 mins. How many degrees does the hour hand turn in 9 hours?

**How many degrees does a clock move in one minute?**

The hour hand of a typical clock goes all around a circle in 12 hours, and since a circle is 360 degrees, it must move 360/12 = 30 degrees in an hour. That’s where the top number in his equation comes from. Since there are 60 minutes in an hour, in one minute it moves 1/60 of that. That’s where his second number comes from.

#### How fast does the hour hand go around the clock?

It takes 12 hours for the hour hand to go all the way around the clock, that’s 360 degrees in 12 hours or 360/12 = 30 degrees per hour. There are 60 minutes in an hour so the hour hand goes 30 degrees in 60 minutes or 30/60 = 1/2 degrees per minute.

#### What is the difference between a degree and a minute?

Minute (arcminute) is a unit of angular measurement equal to 1/60 of one degree. Degree is a measurement of and angle, defined by a full rotation of 360 degrees.
