**For the sectors with given measures, find the length of the arc, area and perimeter.**

**(i) central angle 45°, r = 16 cm**

**(ii) central angle 120°, d =12.6 cm**

**Solution : **

(i) central angle 45°, r = 16 cm

Length of the arc = 0°/360° × 2πr

= 45°/360 × 2 × 3.14 × 16

= 3.14 × 4 cm

= 12.56 cm

Area of the arc = 0°/360° × πr² sq.cm

= 45°/360° × 3.14 × 16 × 16 sq.cm

= 3.14 × 321 sq.cm

= 100.48 sq.cm

Perimeter of the arc = l + 2r

= 12.56 + (2×16) cm

= 12.56 + 32

= 44.56 cm

(ii) central angle 120°, d = 12.6 cm

∴ r = 12.6/2 = 6.3 cm

Length = 120/360 × 2 × 3.14 × 6.3

= 13.188 cm

Area = 12.0/360 × 3.14 × 6.3× 6.3

= 41.5422 sq.cm

Perimeter = l +2r

= 13.88 + (2×6.3)

**Find the central angle of each of the sectors whose measures are given below**

**(i) Area = 462 cm², r = 21 cm**

**(ii) Length of the arc = 44 m, r = 35 m**

**Solution : **

(i) Given area 462 cm², r = 21 cm

Area = θ°/360° πr²

= 462 = θ/360 × 22/7 × 21 × 21

= θ = 120°

(ii) Length of the arc = 44 m, r = 35 m

∴ Length of the arc = θ/360 × 2πr

= 44 = θ/360 × 2 × 2/7 × 35

= θ = 72°

**Question no – (7)**

**A circle of radius 120 m is divided into 8 equal sectors. Find the length of the arc of each of the sectors.**

= (10)² – (3.14 × 55)

= 100 – 78.5

= 21.5 sq.m

Figure – (ii)

r = 7 cm

a = 7 cm

Area of the shaded part = area of the half circle – area of the triangle

= 1/2πr² – √3/4 a²

= 1/2 × 3.14 × 7 × 7 – √3/4 × 7 × 7

= 49/2 (3.14 – √3/4)

= 49/4 (6.28 – √3).

∴ F + V – E

= 12 + 20 – 30

= 2 (satisfied)

(iv) F = 20, V = 13, E = 30

∴ F + V – E

= 20 + 13 – 30

= 120/360 × 22/7 × 3

= 33/14 sq.ft.

= 2.357 (approximately)

Area of the double door = θ°/360 × πr

= (120 + 120)/360° × 22/7 × 3/2

= 240/360 × 22/7 × 3/2

= 22/7

= 3.14 sq. ft

Hence, Guna’s door takes minimum area.

= (15×8) m

∴ l = 15, b = 8

∴ area of the field where no cows can graze = area of the rectangle – area of the circle

= (15×8) – πr²

= 120 – (3.14) × 3²

= 91.74 sq.m

Hence, the area of the field where no cows can graze is 91.74 sq.m
