Seconds on a clock
An analog clock typically has three hands. The shortest hand, and the hand that moves slowest, is the hour hand. The minute hand and the second hand are typically similar in length. Generally, the second hand has less width than the minute hand, and it moves every second, so they are easy to distinguish. The second hand may also often be a different color than the minute and hour hand, which tend to be the same color or design. Below is a figure of an analog clock.
The second hand in the clock is shown in red. To learn more about how to read an analog clock, refer to the time page.
