For second hand, period = 1 min = 60 s; frequency = 0.0166 HzFor minute hand, period = 1 hr = 3600 s; frequency = 2.77×10−4HzFor hour hand, period = 12 hrs = 43200 s; frequency = 2.3×10−5Hz.

## What is the frequency of a minute hand of a clock?

For minute hand, period = 1 hr = 3600 s; The frequency = t1=36001=2.77×10−4Hz.

## What is the frequency of an hour hand on a regular 12 hour clock?

The hour hand of a normal 12-hour analogue clock turns 360° in 12 hours (720 minutes) or 0.5° per minute. The minute hand rotates through 360° in 60 minutes or 6° per minute.

## What is the frequency of rotation of a second hand on a clock?

1/60 Hz.

## What are the period and frequency of a clock?

The clock period or cycle time, T_{c}, is the time between rising edges of a repetitive clock signal. Its reciprocal, f_{c} = 1/T_{c}, is the clock frequency. All else being the same, increasing the clock frequency increases the work that a digital system can accomplish per unit time.

## Which is the hour hand and minute hand?

The small hand on a clock that shows the hours. It goes once around the clock every 12 hours (half a day). (The large hand is the “minute hand” and it shows that it is 22 past the hour, so it is 22 past 8).

## How do u find the frequency?

To calculate frequency, divide the number of times the event occurs by the length of time. Example: Anna divides the number of website clicks (236) by the length of time (one hour, or 60 minutes). She finds that she receives 3.9 clicks per minute.

## How many degrees does the hour hand turns through in 5 hours?

Each hour is 112 of a complete circle for the hour hand (on a standard 12 hour clock). 5 minutes is 112 of an hour. So in 5 minutes, the hour hand moves 112⋅112=1144 of a complete circle.

## How fast does the hour hand move?

The hour hand of a normal 12-hour analogue clock turns 360° in 12 hours (720 minutes) or 0.5° per minute. The minute hand rotates through 360° in 60 minutes or 6° per minute.

## What is the frequency in hertz if the period of the wave is 5 seconds?

The period is 5 seconds, so the frequency is 1/(5 s) = 0.20 Hz.

## What is the frequency of rotation in India?

Explanation: The frequency of Alternating Current in India is 50 Hz. This simply means that the magnetic field around the armature in the Ac-generators in India rotates 50 times per second.

## What is the frequency of a wave?

Waves. Frequency is a measurement of how often a recurring event such as a wave occurs in a measured amount of time. One completion of the repeating pattern is called a cycle. Only moving waves which vary their positions with respect to time possess frequency.

## How long is a clock cycle?

Clock time (CT) is the period of the clock that synchronizes the circuits in a processor. It is the reciprocal of the clock frequency. For example, a 1 GHz processor has a cycle time of 1.0 ns and a 4 GHz processor has a cycle time of 0.25 ns.

## How do you calculate frequency and time period?

Frequency is expressed in Hz (Frequency = cycles/seconds). To calculate the time interval of a known frequency, simply divide 1 by the frequency (e.g. a frequency of 100 Hz has a time interval of 1/(100 Hz) = 0.01 seconds; 500 Hz = 1/(500Hz) = 0.002 seconds, etc.)

## What is a clock cycle?

In computers, the clock cycle is the amount of time between two pulses of an oscillator. … The clock cycle helps in determining the speed of the CPU, as it is considered the basic unit of measuring how fast an instruction can be executed by the computer processor. A clock cycle is also known as a clock tick.
