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?
My question is this.....
If the hour hand is pointing at the ~3 minute mark, and the second hand is pointing at the ~23 second mark (exactly 120 degrees from hour hand), where exactly is the minute hand pointing?
Due to the gearing, it may be almost 120 from each of the other hands. What if it is really 119.5 from the second hand, and 120.5 from the hour hand? Would that be close enough to count it?
