Question

# The length of the minute hand of a clock is $$14$$ cm. Find the area swept by the minute hand in $$5$$ minutes

Solution

## In $$60$$ minutes, minute hand completes $$360^0$$ i.e., one rotation.$$\Rightarrow$$ in $$1$$ minute, minute hands completes $$\dfrac{360^\circ}{60}=6^\circ$$ Hence, in $$5$$ minutes the angle covered is is $$6\times 5=30^o$$.The angle of sector formed is $$30^o$$.The area swept by the minute hand in $$5$$ minutes$$= \dfrac{30}{360}\times \pi \times 14 \times 14$$ Using $$\pi = \dfrac{22}7$$, we getThe area swept by the minute hand in $$5$$ minutes $$=\dfrac{154}3$$ sq. cmMathematicsNCERTStandard X
