Expert Answer:

We know , 
Distance =Speed × time
Thus for watch,
Time = circumference / speed 
Time taken for revolution is =1 minute= 60 seconds
r= 1.5 cm =0.015m
circumference = 2πr= 2×3.14×(0.015)
 
Therefore,
s p e e d equals fraction numerator 0.0942 m over denominator 60 space s end fraction
t h u s comma space s p e e d space equals space 0.00157 space m divided by s space equals space 1.57 cross times 10 to the power of negative 3 end exponent m divided by s
