# Math Problem

For those of whom who are as bored as I am at work today.

My watch has 6 hands, each depicting a different unit of time. For example: a second hand, a minute hand….etc….

Combined, all 6 watch hands have a cumulative rotational velocity of 1,0188524065537411rpm +/-1x10^13

What do each of the 6 hands tell me?

Eg.

Hand 1....second hand, does one revolution every 60 seconds.
Hand 2….
Hand 3….
Hand 4….
Hand 5….
Hand 6….

Should keep you entertained for a few minutes. have fun

Considering that the hands are going around a billion times a minute, its hardly that

its probably closer to
second,
millisecond
nano second, etc

I think its actually 10 to the power of 15, which is a quadrillion.

so, six hands that add up to over a quadrillion Revs in a minute.

though, I may be mistaken.
