Example 1 (Method 1)
Find the area of the sector of a circle with radius 4 cm and of angle 30°. Also, find the area of the corresponding major sector (Use π = 3.14).
Given
Radius = r = 4 cm, θ=30°
Now,
Area of sector = 𝜽/𝟑𝟔𝟎 × 𝝅𝒓𝟐
= 30/360 × 3.14 × (4)2
= 𝟏/𝟏𝟐 × 𝟑.𝟏𝟒 × 𝟒 × 𝟒
= 1/3 × 3.14 × 4
= 12.56/3 cm2
= 4.19 cm2
Area of major sector = ((𝟑𝟔𝟎 − 𝛉))/𝟑𝟔𝟎×𝝅𝒓𝟐
= ((360 − 30))/360 × 3.14 × (4)2
= 𝟑𝟑𝟎/𝟑𝟔𝟎 × 𝟑.𝟏𝟒 × 𝟒 × 𝟒
= 11/12 × 3.14 × 4 × 4
= 46.05 cm2
Example 1 (Method 2)
Find the area of the sector of a circle with radius 4 cm and of angle 30°. Also, find the area of the corresponding major sector (Use π= 3.14).
Given
Radius = r = 4 cm, θ=30°
Now,
Area of sector = 𝜽/𝟑𝟔𝟎 × 𝝅𝒓𝟐
= 30/360 × 3.14 × (4)2
= 𝟏/𝟏𝟐 × 𝟑.𝟏𝟒 × 𝟒 × 𝟒
= 1/3 × 3.14 × 4
= 12.56/3 cm2
= 4.19 cm2
Now,
Area of major sector
= Area of circle – Area of minor sector
Area of circle = 𝜋𝑟2
= 3.14 × 42
= 3.14 × 16
= 50.24 cm2
Now,
Area of major sector
= Area of circle – Area of minor sector
= 50.24 – 4.19
= 46.05 cm2
