**Basic Properties of Circles (2)**

8 Basic Properties of Circles (2) Case Study 8.1 Tangents to a Circle 8.2 Tangents to a Circle from an External Point 8.3 Angles in the Alternate Segments Chapter Summary

2
Case Study Yes, the wheel of a train is a circle and the rail is a straight line. Can you give me one real-life example of a circle and a straight line? The wheels of a train and the rails illustrate an important geometrical relationship between circles and straight lines. When the train travels on the rails, it shows how a circle and a straight line touch each other at only one point.

3
8.1 Tangents to a Circle We can draw a straight line AB and a circle in three different ways: Case 1: The straight line does not meet the circle. Case 2: The straight line cuts the circle at two distinct points, P and Q. Case 3: The straight line touches the circle at exactly one point, T. In case 3, at each point on a circle, we can draw exactly one straight line such that the line touches the circle at exactly one point. Tangent to a circle: straight line if and only if touching the circle at exactly one point Point of contact (point of tangency): point common to both the circle and the straight line

4
8.1 Tangents to a Circle There is a close relationship between the tangent to a circle and the radius joining the point of contact: Theorem 8.1 If AB is a tangent to the circle with centre O at T, then AB is perpendicular to the radius OT. Symbolically, AB OT. (Reference: tangent radius) This theorem can be proved by contradiction: Suppose AB is not perpendicular to the radius OT. Then we can find another point T on AB such that OT AB. Using Pythagoras’ Theorem, OT is shorter than OT. Thus T lies inside the circle. ∴ AB cuts the circle at more than one point.

5
**8.1 Tangents to a Circle The converse of Theorem 8.1 is also true:**

OT is a radius of the circle with centre O and AB is a straight line that intersects the circle at T. If AB is perpendicular to OT, then AB is a tangent to the circle at T. In other words, if AB OT, then AB is a tangent to the circle at T. (Reference: converse of tangent radius) Hence we can deduce an important fact: The perpendicular to a tangent at its point of contact passes through the centre of the circle.

**Example 8.1T 8.1 Tangents to a Circle Solution:**

In the figure, O is the centre of the circle. AB is a tangent to the circle at T. OC TC 9 cm. (a) Find CAT and CTA. (b) Find the length of AT. Solution: (a) OT OC 9 cm (radii) ∴ DOCT is an equilateral triangle. ∴ COT OTC 60 (prop. of equilateral D) OTA 90 (tangent radius) ∴ CTA 90 60 30 In DOAT, CAT OTA COT 180 ( sum of D) CAT 30

9
**8.2 Tangents to a Circle from an External Point**

Consider an external point T of a circle. We can always draw two tangents from that point. In the figure, we can prove that DOTA DOTB (RHS): OAT OBT 90 (tangent radius) OT OT (common side) OA OB (radii) Hence the corresponding sides and the corresponding angles of DOTA and DOTB are equal: TA TB (corr. sides, Ds) TOA TOB (corr. s, Ds) OTA OTB (corr. s, Ds)

10
**8.2 Tangents to a Circle from an External Point**

Properties of tangents from an external point: Theorem 8.3 In the figure, if TA and TB are the two tangents drawn to the circle with centre O from an external point T, then (a) the lengths of the two tangents are equal, that is, TA TB; (b) the two tangents subtend equal angles at the centre, that is, TOA TOB; (c) the line joining the external point to the centre of the circle is the angle bisector of the angle included by the two tangents, that is, OTA OTB. (Reference: tangent properties) In the figure, OT is the axis of symmetry.

**8.3 Angles in the Alternate Segments**

In the figure, AB is a tangent to the circle at T and PT is a chord of the circle. Tangent-chord angles: angles formed between a chord and a tangent to a circle, such as PTA and PTB. Alternate segment: segment lying on the opposite side of a tangent-chord angle segment I is the alternate segment with respect to PTB segment II is the alternate segment with respect to PTA Consider the tangent-chord angle b. Then a is an angle in the alternate segment with respect to b. Notes: We can construct infinity many angles in the alternate segment with respect to b.

D) In DPAR, 40 APR ARP 180 ( sum of D) ARP 70 ∴ PQR ARP 70 ( in alt. segment) Similarly, ∵ CQ CR (tangent properties) ∴ CRQ CQR 56 ∴ PRQ 180 70 56 54 ∴ QPR CRQ 56 ( in alt. segment)

19
**8.3 Angles in the Alternate Segments**

The converse of Theorem 8.4 is also true: Theorem 8.5 A straight line is drawn through an end point of a chord of a circle. If the angle between the straight line and the chord is equal to an angle in the alternate segment, then the straight line is a tangent to the circle. In other words, if x y, then TA is a tangent to the circle at A. (Reference: converse of in alt. segment)
