Q.17 The minute hand of a circular clock is 15 cm long. How far does the tip of the minute hand move in 1 hour? (Take \(\pi \) = 3.14)

Length of minute hand = 15 cm

\(\therefore \)Radius = 15 cm

Circumference = 2\(\pi \) r = 2 × 3.14 × 15 cm = 94.2 cm

Since the minute hand covers the distance in 1 hour equal to the circumference of the circle. Here the required distance covered by the minute hand = 94.2 cm.
