# What is the angle of rotation of the minute hand of a clock moving from 6:10 to 7:00?

**Solution:**

A clock is a circle, and a circle always contains 360 degrees. Since there are 60 minutes on a clock, each minute mark is 6 degrees.

You can also check the clock angle formula for easy calculations.

360°/60 minutes = 6°per minute

Angle swept for 1 minute is 6°

Time elapsed in between 6:10 to 7:00 = 50 minutes

So, angle swept for 50 minutes = 50 × 6

= 300 degrees

Therefore, the total angle that a minute hand will sweep in between 6:10 to 7:00 is 300 degrees.

## What is the angle of rotation of the minute hand of a clock moving from 6:10 to 7:00?

**Summary:**

The angle of rotation of the minute hand of a clock moving from 6:10 to 7:00 is 300 degrees.
