but how?

Input is some time ,like 5:37.How much is

angular movement of hour hand from position 12? 30*5 = 150 degrees + 15 degrees(bcos of those first 30 minutes) = 165 degrees.

Now hour hand moves by 30 degrees when minutes hand moves by 360 degrees,right? so for 1 minute,30/360-->(1/12) degrees,correct?So for 7 minutes 7/12 degrees.So total angular movement of hour hand is 165+(7/12) degrees.

Now angular movement of minute hand is 180+30+12 = 222 degrees.

I hope now you can make a formula out of it.

Has anybody has used Theodolite for calculating the angle and the distance between the two objects on a surface?
