### Exercise 15.3 Solutions

1. AB is a chord of a circle with centre O and radius 4cm. AB is length 4cm and divides circle into two segments. Find the area of minor segment

Solution 2. A chord of circle of radius 14 cm makes a right angle at the centre. Find the areas of minor and major segments of the circle.

Solution 3. A chord 10 cm long is drawn in a circle whose radius is 5√2 cm. Find the area of both segments

Solution

Given radius = r = 5√2 cm = OA = OB
Length of chord AB = 10 cm 4. A chord AB of circle, of radius 14 cm makes an angle of 60° at the centre. Find the area of minor segment of circle.

Solution 5. AB is the diameter of a circle, centre O. C is a point on the circumference such that ∠COB = θ. The area of the minor segment cutoff by AC is equal to twice the area of sector BOC. Prove that sinθ/2 cosθ/2 = π(1/2 - θ/120°)
Solution 6. A chord of a circle subtends an angle θ at the centre of circle. The area of the minor segment cut off by the chord is one eighth of the area of circle. Prove that 8 sinθ/2. cosθ/2
π = πθ/45
