## Definition of Clocks

A clock’s dial is like a broad ring, divided into 12 identical portions, where every single part demonstrates different hours. Every hour space is further segmented in 5 sections – each having a 1 minute time duration. Usually there are two needles that revolve in a clock. On this page you’ll find Clocks Questions and Answers for practice.

The hour needle shields 1/12 Th boundary of the circle in 1 hour. Alternatively, the minute needle covers just one circumference of the clock per hour.

### Formula or Rule for solving Clocks Questions and Answers

• Since the minute needle moves at a speed of 55 minutes per hour, therefore in 1 minute, the minute point covers a distance of (55/60) or (11/12) minutes.
• Therefore the Clock Formula: 11/12 which is essential in finding out the angle between two needles of a clock.
• As minute needle covers 360 degrees per hour, covering one full circle. Hence is travels 360/60= 6 degrees/min.
• 60-minute space = 360° = 1 hour
1-minute space = 6° = 1 minute
5-minute space = 6° x 5 = 30° = 5 minutes
Right Angle or Perpendicular = 15-minute spaces apart
