Hands On A Clock (Posted on 2004-07-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Do the three hands on an analog clock (hours, minutes, seconds) ever divide the face of the clock into three equal segments, i.e. 120 degrees between each hand?

You are referring to this line from my table in the first comment:

time      hour hd  min hand  sec hand hr.h.-m.h. m.h. - sh sh - hh
0:43.64   21.8182  261.8182  229.0909 -240.0000   32.7273  207.2727

at 43.64 minutes past 12, when the second hand is separated from the minute hand by just under 33 degrees.
