Ex 11.1, 4
A chord of a circle of radius 10 cm subtends a right angle at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding :
minor segment (Use π= 3.14)
Given that
OA = OB = radius = 10 cm
θ=90°
Now,
Area of segment APB = Area of sector OAPB – Area of ΔAOB
Area of sector OAPB
Area of sector OAPB = θ/(360°)× πr2
= 90/360 × 3.14 × (10)2
= 𝟏/𝟒 × 𝟑.𝟏𝟒 × 𝟏𝟎𝟎
= 1/4× 314
= 78.5 cm2
Area of ΔAOB
Now, ΔAOB is a right triangle, where ∠ O = 90°
having Base = OA & Height = OB
Area of Δ AOB = 1/2 × Base × Height
= 𝟏/𝟐 × OA × OB
= 1/2 × 10 × 10
= 50 cm2
Now,
Area of segment APB = Area of sector OAPB – Area of ΔAOB
= 78.5 – 50
= 28.5 cm2
Ex 11.1, 4 (Method 1)
A chord of a circle of radius 10 cm subtends a right angle at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding :
(ii) major sector (Use π= 3.14)
Here, θ = 90°
& radius = r = 10 cm
Area of major sector = ((𝟑𝟔𝟎° − 𝜽))/(𝟑𝟔𝟎°)×𝛑𝐫𝟐
= ((360 − 90))/360 × 3.14 × (10)2
= 𝟐𝟕𝟎/𝟑𝟔𝟎 × 𝟑.𝟏𝟒 × 𝟏𝟎𝟎
= 3/4× 314
= 235.5 cm2
Ex 11.1, 4(Method 2)
A chord of a circle of radius 10 cm subtends a right angle at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding :
(ii) major sector (Use π= 3.14)
Area of major sector
= Area of circle – Area of sector OAPB
Area of circle = πr2
= 3.14 × (10)2
= 3.14 × 100
= 314 cm2
Now,
Area of major sector = Area of circle – Area of sector OAPB
= 314 – 78.5
= 235.5 cm2
