angle between the minute hand and the hour hand of a clock when the time is 8.30 is 75 degrees.
at 8:30 hours hand is sharply at the center of 8 and 9.
minutes hand is sharply at 6
the angle between 6 and 9 is 90 degree
from 6 to 9 dividing for every 0.5 having 15 degrees each
so angle is 5*15 =75 degree
Angle traced by hour hand in 17/2 hrs = (360/12 x 17/2)º = 255.
Angle traced by min. hand in 30 min. = (360/60 x 30 )º = 180.
Required angle = (255 - 180)º = 75º.
If we measure the angle between the minute hand and the hour hand in the clockwise direction, Then
the answer is: 360 -75 = 285 degrees
Can you find out the angle between the minute hand and the hour hand at 3:15 on an analog clock? Think hard and then come to a conclusion.
I noticed that in my big wall clock, there is a time when the minute and hour clock are exactly between one and two. Also I notice both hands lie on top of each other.
What is the time I am talking about ?
