The length of the minute hand of a clock is 14 cm. Find the area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes.
So 15 minutes = 90º
5 min = 5 × 6°
So 5 minutes subtend an angle of 30º.
Therefore, the area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes will be the area of a sector of 30° in a circle of 14 cm radius.
Area swept by min hand = Area of sector
