the time – 1 hour
We all have seen three hands on the face of clock. The
hour hand tells time in hours. There are 12 major divisions marked on the
When the hour hand moves from 1 division to the next
division, 1 hour have passed.
There are 12 major divisions and each division stand
for 5 minutes, so we can say 1 hour = 12 x 5 = 60 minutes.
The minute hand moves faster compared to hour hand and
minute hand takes 1 hour to complete 1 round of the face of the clock whereas
hour hand takes 12 hours to complete one round of the face of the clock.
Reading time in hours
Here, hour hand is at 10 and minute hand is at 12. So,
time is 10 hours or 10 o’clock.
Here, hour hand is at 8 and minute hand is at 12. So,
time is 8 hours or 8 o’clock.
Here, hour hand is at 4 and minute hand is at 12. So,
time is 4 hours or 4 o’clock.
Time shown by the digital clock is 9:00 which is same
as 9 o’ clock.
