Ex 11.1, 7 A chord of a circle of radius 12 cm subtends an angle of 120Β° at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding segment of the circle. (Use Ο = 3.14 and β3 = 1.73) In a given circle, Radius (r) = 12 cm And, π½ = 120Β° Now, Area of segment APB = Area of sector OAPB β Area of ΞOAB Finding Area of sector OAPB Area of sector OAPB = π/360Γ ππ2 = 120/360Γ3.14Γ(12)2 = 1/3Γ3.14Γ12Γ12 = 1 Γ 3.14 Γ 4 Γ 12 = 150.72 cm2 Ex 11.1, 7 A chord of a circle of radius 12 cm subtends an angle of 120Β° at the centre.
