{Unless stated otherwise, use $$\pi=\frac{22}{7}$$}

Question 1.
Find the area of a sector of a circle with radius 6 cm if angle of the sector is 60°.
Solution:
Radius of a sector of a circle, r = 6 cm.
Angle of a sector of a circle, θ = 60°
Area of a sector of a circle = ?
Area of a sector of a circle $$=\frac{\theta}{360} \times \pi r^{2}$$ = 18.8 sq.cm. Question 2.
Find the area of a quadrant of a circle whose circumference is 22 cm.
Solution:
Circumference of a circle, 2πr = 22 cm.
Area of a quadrant of a circle = ?
2πr = 22 ∴ Area of a quadrant of a circle $$=\frac{77}{8}$$
= 9.62 sq. cm.

Question 3.
The length of the minute hand of a clock is 14 cm. Find the area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes.
Solution:
Length of minute hand = radius of the circle (r) = 14 cm
∵ Angle swept by the minute hand in 60 minutes = 360°
∴ Angle swept by the minute hand in 360°
5 minutes = $$\frac{360^{\circ}}{60}$$ × 5 = 30°
Now, area of the sector with r = 14 cm and θ = 30°
= $$\frac{\theta}{360^{\circ}}$$ × πr2 = $$\frac{30^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}} \times \frac{22}{7}$$ × 14 × 14 cm2
= $$\frac{11 \times 14}{3} \mathrm{cm}^{2}=\frac{154}{3} \mathrm{cm}^{2}$$
Thus, the required area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes = $$\frac{154}{3}$$ cm2 Question 4.
A chord of a circle of radius 10 cm subtends a right angle at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding:
(i) minor segment, (ii) major sector. (Use π = 3.14)
Solution:
Radius of the circle, r = 10 cm.
Angle at the centre of circle, θ = 90°
1) Area of minor segment = ?
2) Area of Major segment = ?
(i) Area of minor segment OAPB ii) Area of Minor Segment, APB :
= Area of OAPB – Area of AOAB
$$=78.5 \mathrm{cm}^{2} \cdot-\frac{1}{2} \times \mathrm{OA} \times \mathrm{OB}$$
$$=78.5-\frac{1}{2} \times 10 \times 10$$
= 78.5 – 50
= 28.5 sq. cm.

(iii) Area of the Major Segment (AQBO): Question 5.
In a circle of radius 21 cm, an arc subtends an angle of 60° at the centre. Find:
(i) the length of the arc
(ii) area of the sector formed by the arc
(iii) area of the segment formed by the corresponding chord
Solution:
Here, radius(r) = 21 cm and θ = 60°
(i) Circumference of the circle = 2πr
= 2 × $$\frac{22}{7}$$ × 21 cm = 2 × 22 × 3 cm = 132 cm ∴ Length of the arc APB  Question 6.
A chord of a circle of radius 15 cm subtends an angle of 60° at the centre. Find the areas of the corresponding minor and major segments of the circle.
(Use π = 3.14 and $$\sqrt{3}=1.73$$).
Solution:
Radius of circle, r = 15 cm.
Angle at the centre, θ = 60°
1) Area of the minor segment =?
2) Area of the Major segment =? (i) Area of Minor segment, APB :
= Area of sector OAPB – Area of ∆OAB = 117.75 sq. cm. – 97.31
= 20.44 sq. cm.

ii) Area of the Major segment:
= Area of Circle – Area of a segment of circle OAPB = 3.14 × 225 – 20.44
= 707.14 – 20.44
= 686.06 cm2.

Question 7.
A chord of a circle of radius 12 cm subtends an angle of 120° at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding segment of the circle. (Use π = 3.14 and $$\sqrt{3}=$$ = 1.73 )
Solution:
Here θ = 120° and r = 12 cm Draw OM ⊥ AB
In ∆AOB, ∠O = 120°
By angle sum property,
∠A + ∠B + ∠O = 180°
⇒ ∠A + ∠B = 180° – 120° = 60°
∵ OB = OA = 12 cm
⇒ ∠A = ∠B = 30° = 36 × 1.73 cm2 = 62.28 cm2
∴ Area of the minor segment = [Area of sector] – [Area of ∆AOB]
= [150.72 cm2] – [62.28 cm2] = 88.44 cm2 Question 8.
A horse is tied to a peg at one corner of a square-shaped grass field of side 15 m by means of a 5 m. long rope (see Figure). Find
i) the area of that part of the field in which the horse can graze.
ii) the increase in the grazing area if the rope were 10 m long instead of 5 m. (use π = 3.14) Solution:
Length of the rope, r = 5 m, θ = 90°
Area of segment =? (ii) Length of the rope, r = 10 cm, θ = 90°
Area of segment =? ∴ Area of the field which is increased in the grazing
= Equation (2) – Equation (1)
= 78.5 – 19.63
= 58.87 sq. cm.

Question 9.
A brooch is made with silver wire in the form of a circle with diameter 35 mm. The wire is also used in making 5 diameters which divide the circle into 10 equal sectors as shown in the figure. Find:
(i) the total length of the silver wire required.
(ii) the area of each sector of the brooch. Solution:
Diameter of the circle = 35 mm
∴ Radius (r) = $$\frac{35}{2}$$ mm
(i) Circumference = 2πr
= 2 × $$\frac{22}{7} \times \frac{35}{2}$$ mm = 22 × 5 mm = 110 mm
Length of 1 piece of wire used to make diameter to divide the circle into 10 equal sectors = 35 mm
∴ Length of 5 pieces = 5 × 35 mm = 175 mm
∴ Total length of the silver wire = (110 + 175) mm = 285 mm

(ii) Since the circle is divided into 10 equal sectors,  Question 10.

Radius of circle, r = 45 cm.
Angle at the centre, θ = $$\frac{360^{\circ}}{8}$$ = 45°
Area between the two consecutive ribs of the umbrella =?
Area of each segment of the circle, Question 11.

Solution:
Here, radius (r) = 25 cm
Sector angle (θ) = 115°
∴ Total area cleaned at each sweep of the blades  Question 12.

Solution:
Radius, r = 16.5 km. = $$\frac{33}{2}$$ km.
Angle, θ = 80°
Area of the Sector =?
Area of the sea over which the ships are warned  Question 13.
A round table cover has six equal designs as shown in Figure. If the radius of the cover is 28 cm, find the cost of making the designs at the rate of Rs. 0.35 per cm2.
(Use $$\sqrt{3}=$$ = 1.7) Solution:
Each angle at the centre,  Area of segment APB design 1 :
= Area of OAPB – Area of ∆AOB
= 410.6 – 333.2
= 77.46 sq.cm.
∴ Total are of SIX designs = 6 × 77.46
= 464.8 sq.cm.
Cost of designing for 1 sq.cm, is Rs. 0.35
∴ Cost of designing for 464.8 sq.cm ………….
= 464.8 × 0.35
= Rs. 162.68 Question 14.
