1. Find the radian measures corresponding to the following degree measures:

(i) 25Â° (ii) â€“ 47Â° 30â€² (iii) 240Â° (iv) 520Â°

Solution:

(iv) 520Â°

2. Find the degree measures corresponding to the following radian measures (Use Ï€ = 22/7).

(i) 11/16

(ii) -4

(iii) 5Ï€/3

(iv) 7Ï€/6

Solution:

(i) 11/16

(ii) -4

(iii) 5Ï€/3

We get

= 300o

(iv) 7Ï€/6

We get

= 210o

3. A wheel makes 360 revolutions in one minute. Through how many radians does it turn in one second?

Solution:

It is given that

No. of revolutions made by the wheel in

1 minute = 360

1 second = 360/60 = 6

We know that

The wheel turns an angle of 2Ï€ radian in one complete revolution.

In 6 complete revolutions, it will turn an angle of 6 Ã— 2Ï€ radian = 12 Ï€ radian

Therefore, in one second, the wheel turns at an angle of 12Ï€ radian.

4. Find the degree measure of the angle subtended at the centre of a circle of radius 100 cm by an arc of length 22 cm (Use Ï€ = 22/7).

Solution:

5. In a circle of diameter 40 cm, the length of a chord is 20 cm. Find the length of the minor arc of the chord.

Solution:

The dimensions of the circle are

Diameter = 40 cm

Radius = 40/2 = 20 cm

Consider AB as the chord of the circle, i.e., length = 20 cm

In Î”OAB,

Radius of circle = OA = OB = 20 cm

Similarly AB = 20 cm

Hence, Î”OAB is an equilateral triangle.

Î¸ = 60Â° = Ï€/3 radian

In a circle of radiusÂ rÂ unit, if an arc of lengthÂ lÂ unit subtends an angleÂ Î¸ radian at the centre,

We get Î¸ = 1/r

Therefore, the length of the minor arc of the chord is 20Ï€/3 cm.

6. If in two circles, arcs of the same length subtend angles 60Â° and 75Â° at the centre, find the ratio of their radii.

Solution:

7. Find the angle in the radian through which a pendulum swings if its length is 75 cm and the tip describes an arc of length

(i) 10 cm (ii) 15 cm (iii) 21 cm

Solution:

In a circle of radius r unit, if an arc of length l unit subtends an angle Î¸ radian at the centre, then Î¸ = 1/r

We know that r = 75 cm

(i) l = 10 cm

So we get

By further simplification,

(ii) l = 15 cm

So, we get

By further simplification,

(iii) l = 21 cm

So, we get
