We know that in 1 hour (i.e., 60 minutes), the minute hand rotates 360°.

In 5 minutes, minute hand will rotate =

Therefore, the area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes will be the area of a sector of 30° in a circle of 14 cm radius.

Area of sector of angle θ =

Area of sector of 30°

Therefore, the area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes is 154/3cm^{2}
