RD Sharma Class 10 Solutions Areas related to Circles Exercise 15.3

Question 1.
AB is a chord of a circle with centre O and radius 4 cm. AB is of length 4 cm and divides the circle into two segments. Find the area of the minor segment.
Solution:
Radius of the circle (r) = 4 cm
Length of the chord AB = 4 cm
∴  In ΔOAB
OA = OB = AB    (each = 4 cm)

Question 2.
A chord PQ of length 12 cm subtends an angle of 120° at the centre of a circle. Find the area of the minor segment cut off by the chord PQ.
Solution:
Length of chord PQ = 12 cm
Angle at the centre (θ) = 120°
∵  Draw OD ⊥ DQ
which bisects PQ at D and also bisects ∠POQ

Question 3.
A chord of a circle of radius 14 cm makes a right angle at the centre. Find the areas of the minor and major segments of the circle.
Solution:
Radius of the circle (r) = 14 cm
Angle at the centre (θ) = 90°

Question 4.
A ehord 10 cm long is drawn in a circle whose radius is 5\sqrt { 2 }

Question 5.
A chord AB of a circle, of radius 14 cm makes an angle of 60° at the centre of the circle. Find the area of the minor segment of the circle. (Use π = 22/7)
Solution:
Radius of the circle (r) – 14 cm
Angle at the centre subtended in the fnui
AB = 60°

Question 7.
A chord of a circle of radius 20 cm subtends an angle of 90° at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding major segment of the circle. (Use π = 3.14) [NCERT Exemplar]
Solution:
Let AB be the chord of a circle of radius 10 cm,
with O as the centre of the circle.
