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

A minute hand sweeps 30 degrees in 5 minutes.

## Answer: The total angle that minute hand will sweep in between 6:10 to 7:00 = 50 × 6 = 300 degrees.

Let us see how we will find the angle of rotation of the minute hand of a clock moving from 6:10 to 7:00.

**Explanation:**

We know that a minute hand sweeps 30 degrees in 5 minutes.

Hence, it sweeps 6 degrees in one minute.

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

Thus, the total angle that minute hand will sweep in between 6:10 to 7:00 = 50 × 6 = 300 degrees.
