Clock Angle at 2:40
Calculate the angle between the hands of the clock
If the time is
40 Break out time components H
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(
Hours = 30(
θh = 60
Each minute is 1/60 of an hour.
Each hour represents 30 degrees.
Minutes Angle = M(30)/60 → M/2:
θm = 20
Calculate ∠ between the clock: Δθ
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°
