( About ) 1.1 cm / s

Explanation:

We know that the time it takes the clock’s second hand to move is 60 seconds. Respectively the radius of this clock is given to be 10.5 centimeters.

_______________________________________________________

Let us apply the formula speed = distance traveled / time. Here the ” distance traveled ” is the circumference of the clock, or 2πr – where we can pose π as 3.14. In other words, Speed = 2πr / time. Substitute known values to solve for the Speed,

S = 2 * 3.14 * 10.5 / 60,

Speed = ( About ) 1.1 cm / s

Hope that helps!
