 # Clock Angle at 2:40

## Enter Time or Angle in Degrees

Calculate the angle between the hands of the clock
If the time is 2:40

H = 2
M = 40

## Calculate ∠ between 12 and 2

There are 360° in a full circle (clock)
There are 12 hours
Each hour = 360/12 = 30°

Hours = 30(H)
Hours = 30(2)
θh = 60

## Minute Formula

Each minute is 1/60 of an hour.
Each hour represents 30 degrees.
Minutes Angle = M(30)/60 → M/2:
 θm  = M 2

 θm  = 40 2

θm = 20

Δθ = |θh + θm|
Δθ = |60 + 20|
Δθ = |80|

## Hands in opposite direction:

Clockwise + counter-clockwise = 360°
Subtract our clockwise angle from 360°
Angle 2 = 360 - 80°  Δθ = 80°
Angle 2 = 280°
