Hello, It depends if you want to compensate for the hour hand, as it shifts a tiny bit every second. That is how a mechanical clock works. The minute hand makes 6 degrees every minute. Bertus
A clock shows the time as 12.20. What is the angle the hour hand makes with the minutes hand? The question is exactly what is the Angle now..
Hello, I made a mistake in post #5. When the hour hand makes a 30 degrees move in an hour, it will make a move of 10 degrees in 20 minutes. Bertus
When the hour hand makes a 30 degrees move in an hour, it will make a move of 10 degrees in 20 minutes. How? There is total 360 if anything go circle/round ... the answer is 110 degree why?
Draw the analogue clock on a sheet of paper, but instead of the 12 hours, mark the 12 divisions in degrees, starting with 0 degrees at the top. The answer should become obvious if you remember to think carefully. Hint - the hour hand does not point to 0 degrees Over to you....
The hour hand goes 360 degrees in 12 hours => 30 degrees /hour => 10 degrees in 20 minutes. The minute hand does 360 degrees in 60 minutes => 120 degrees in 20 minutes. => angle between the hands = (120 - 10) = 110 degrees.
Look at a real analogue clock and see where the hands are at 12:20. Think about why the hands are where they are. Draw what you see and then work out the angle between hands. Play around with an analogue clock for a while adjusting the time manually and think about what is happening. Can't think what else to suggest.
The Smaller hour hand goes to Top 12hour The bigger is at 4 because it is 20 min The right angle i.e. 12 hour hand and 15 min is 90 degree , plus more 5 min What else to do with it?
The Smaller hour hand goes to Top 12hour - wrong - go and find a real clock and study it The bigger is at 4 because it is 20 min - correct Study a real clock and then try again
Hello, Try to set the time on this clock and look where the hands are: http://www.visnos.com/demos/clock Bertus
