(a) 80°

(b) 75°

(c) 60°

(d) 105°

The angle between the minute and hour hands of a clock at 8:30 is 75

We are aware that a clock’s hour hand completes one rotation every twelve hours.

The hour hand’s 12 hour angle trace = 360

Now,

Angle traced by the hour hand in 8 hours 30 minutes, i.e., 17/2 = (360/12 x 17/2)

= 255

We are also aware that a clock’s minute hand revolves once every 60 minutes.

The minute hand’s angle over a period of 60 minutes = 360

Now,

Angle traced by the minute hand in 30 minutes = (360/60 x 30) = 180

Required angle between two hands of the clock = 255 – 180 = 75

### Time

It is possible to define time as the dimension on which any system evolves. Its length can be expressed in terms of milliseconds, seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years. Other ways to express time include:

• Past: The occurrence of an event before the specified point in time is referred to as the past.
• Present: The occurrence of an event at that specific point in time is referred to as being present.
• Future: The occurrence of an event at an ambiguous time reference is referred to as the future.

Summary:-

## The Angle Between the minute and hour hands of a clock at 8:30 is

The angle between the minute and hour hands of a clock at 8:30 is 75. Time can be defined as the dimension based on which the evolution of any system takes place.
