Areas Related to Circles Class 10 Notes: Chapter 12

Areas Related to Circles Class 10 Notes i.e. for chapter 12 provided here are extremely useful for the class 10 students to prepare and revise this chapter in a more efficient way. The most important topics from this chapter include the following topics which are explained in detail below.

  • Area of a circle
  • Perimeter or circumference of a circle
  • Area of a sector of a circle
  • Area of a segment of a circle

Area and Circumference of a Circle

For a circle, its area can be calculated by measuring the region that is enclosed by its boundary. The perimeter of a circle or its circumference is defined as the length of the circle’s boundary. The formula for area and perimeter of a circle is given as-

Area of a Circle \(\pi r^{2}\)
Circumference of a Circle \(2\pi r\)

Area of a Sector of a Circle

A sector of a circle can be defined as the part of that particular circle which is in between any two chosen radii.

Area of a Sector of a Circle

In the above diagram, the shaded region is the sector of a triangle and its area and the length of an arc of a sector is given by-

\(Area\, of\, the\, sector\, of\, angle\, \theta\) \(\frac{\theta}{360}\times \pi\times r^{2}\)
\(Length\, of\, an\, arc\, of\, a\, sector\, of\, angle\, \theta\) \(\frac{\theta}{360}\times 2\pi r\)

Area of a Segment of a Circle

Consider the same figure as given above-

Area of a Segment of a Circle

In this, AB is a chord which divides the circle into two parts i.e. a major part and a minor part. Now, the Area of the segment APB can be found by-

Area of the segment APB = Area of the sector OAPB – Area of ∆ OAB


\(Area\, of\, the\, segment\, APB = \frac{\theta}{360}\times \pi r^{2} – area\, of\, triangle\, \bigtriangleup OAPB\)
