Distance traveled by Minute Hand = 14*(π/2) = (7π)cm (minute hand travels 90º in 15 minutes)
angle traveled by the hourhand in 15 minutes = 15*360/(12*60) = 7.5º
Distance traveled by Hour Hand = (7.5*(π/180))*10 = ((15/36)π)cm = (5π/12)cm.
The difference in distance covered by the minute and the hour hand in 15 minutes = 7π - (5π/12) = (79π/12) cm
