    Angles in the coordinate plane

    Im working on a section that is Angles in the Coordinate Plane

    The Problem is: through how many degress does the second hand of the clock rotate in 2 h 23 min and 20 s?
    I know the answer is 51600 degrees im just not sure how to get it..

    Any Help?
    Thanks so much

    In 1 minute (60 seconds). the second hand makes a complete revolution of the clock, i.e. it makes a 360 degree revolution.

    So to get your answer, find out how many minutes compose 2 hours, 23 minutes and 20 seconds and multiply by 360.
