Question 1. Find the radian measures corresponding to the following degree measures:
- (i) 25°
- (ii) -47°30′
- (iii) 240°
- (iv) 520°
We have, 180° = π Radians
Question 2. Find the degree measures corresponding to the following radian measures
- (ii) -4
We have π Radians = 180°
Question 3. A wheel makes 360 revolutions in one minute. Through how many radians does it turn in one second ?
Number of revolutions made by wheel in one minute = 360
As we know that, 1 Revolution = 27 π Radians
∴ 360 Revolutions = 720 π Radians
∴ In 1 minute wheel can make = 720 π Radians
⇒ In 60 seconds wheel can make = 720 π Radians
⇒ In 1 second wheel can make
Question 4. Find the degree measure of the angle subtended at the centre of a circle of radius 100 cm by an arc of length 22 cm
Let O be the centre and AB be the arc length of the circle.
Question 5. In a circle of diameter 40 cm, the length of a chord is 20 cm. Find the length of minor arc of Xhe chord.
Let AB be the minor arc of the chord.
AB = 20 cm, OA = OB = 20 cm
Question 6. If in two circles, arcs of the same length subtend angles 60° and 75° at the centre, find the ratio of their, radii.
Let r1 r2 and θ1, θ2 be the radii and angles subtended at the centre of two circles respectively.
Question 7. Find the angle in radian through which a pendulum swings if its length is 75 cm and the tip describes an arc of length
- (i) 10 cm
- (ii) 15 cm
- (iii) 21 cm
