As students, it is always challenging to understand what the hands of the clock indicate and how they work. Hours, minutes, and seconds can confuse you one way or another. That's because we fail to understand what each of these means. Take a closer look at the clock and watch the speed of each hand. Are they ticking at the same speed, no, right? So, let's try to understand better the clocks fixed in our homes. When we read time, generally, it has hours, minutes, and seconds in it. While sometimes, we do not pay much attention to the seconds, we can never ignore the minutes mentioned in the time. A minute is the second unit of time after an hour. There are 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour. And this is why each of these hands rotates at different speeds. If we consider this example; it's 10:35 in the morning. This means that it's 35 minutes past to 10 o'clock. In this example, you see, it is essential to mention the minutes precisely as they tell you the exact time of the day.
