A clock forms a circle.
The second hand of a clock is the same as the radius of the circle formed by the clock
Area of a circle is TTr^2 = 22/7(6.3cm)^2 = 124.74cm^2
Assuming the clock is a 12 hour clock,
in 12hrs, the second hand of clock will travel 124.74cm^2
in 5mins, how far will the tip go?
First lets convert 5mins in hours
60min = 1hour
5min = ?
5/60 X 1hour = 0.08333hours
if 12hoours the second hand of the clock will travel 124.74cm^2
then in 0.0833hours the tip of the second hand clock =?
12hrs = 124.74cm^2
0.08333 = ?
(0.08333/12) x 124.74cm^2 = 0.86621535cm^2
So in 5mins or 0.08333hours, the tip of the clock will travel 0.86621535cm^2
