# Clocks Questions and Answers

**Clocks Questions**

On this page, you’ll find Clocks Questions and Answers for practice. Go through this page to get all sample Clocks Questions with Solutions along with basic formulas that can be used to solve the Clocks Questions.

About Clock:
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.

**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 **Coinciding Hands:**The hour and minute hands coincide (overlap) 11 times in every 12-hour period.**Clock Movements:**Clocks always move in a clockwise direction. The minute hand moves 12 times faster than the hour hand, and the second hand moves 60 times faster than the hour hand.

Point To Remember:
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.

Fact About Relative Speed:
Relative Speed: The minute hand gains 5.5 minutes on the hour hand every hour. This means it takes 60 minutes (1 hour) for the minute hand to gain a full 360-degree rotation on the hour hand.
