© Boardworks Ltd 2005 3 of 40 Using radians to measure arc length Suppose an arc AB of a circle of radius r subtends an angle of θ radians at the centre. r r θ O A B where θ is measured in radians. If the angle at the centre is 1 radian then the length of the arc is r. If the angle at the centre is 2 radians then the length of the arc is 2 r. If the angle at the centre is 0.3 radians then the length of the arc is 0.3 r. In general: Length of arc AB = θr When θ is measured in degrees the length of AB is

The angle at the centre of a full circle is 2 π radians. When θ is measured in degrees the area of AOB is In general: Area of sector AOB = r 2 θ  Area of sector AOB = So the area of the sector AOB is of the area of the full circle.

Find in terms of π : a) the length of the arc AB. b) the area of the sector AOB. 9 cm O A B a) length of arc AB = θr = 6 π cm = 27 π cm 2 b) area of sector AOB = r 2 θ

© Boardworks Ltd 2005 6 of 40 Finding the area of a segment A chord AB divides a circle of radius 5 cm into two segments. If AB subtends an angle of 45° at the centre of the circle, find the area of the minor segment to 3 significant figures. 5 cm 45° O A B The formula for the area of a sector can be combined with the formula for the area of a triangle to find the area of a segment. For example: Let’s call the area of sector AOB A S and the area of triangle AOB A T.
