Which is greater

Answer :

Angular Velocity =

Where, = Angle Traversed and = Time Taken


One complete Round corresponds to angle =

Now, hour clock takes 12 hours to complete one round.

So, angular velocity =

Earth takes 24 hours to completely revolve around its axis.

So, earth’s angular velocity =

Thus, the angular velocity of hour hand of a watch is greater than the angular velocity of earth about its axis.
