Length of arc = (θ/360) x 2πr
Problem 1 :
A circle has an arc whose measure is 18° and whose length is 88π . Find
i) Radius ii) area of sector
Solution :
Arc measure = 18°
Length of arc = 88π
(θ/360) x 2πr = 88π
(18/360) x 2πr = 88π
r = 88/10
r = 8.8
Area of sector = (18/360) x π(8.8)^{2}
= 12.15
Problem 2 :
A circle has a circumference whose length is 25π . Find the area of sector whose central angle is 90°
Solution :
Arc measure = 90°
Length of arc = 25π
(θ/360) x 2πr = 25π
(90/360) x 2πr = 25π
r = 50
Area of sector = (90/360) x π(50)^{2}
= 625π
Problem 3 :
Find the measure of the central angle of an arc if its length is 14π and the radius is 18. Find the area of sector.
Solution :
radius = 18
Length of arc = 14π
(θ/360) x 2πr = 14π
(θ/360) x 2π x 18 = 14π
θ = 140
Area of sector = (θ/360) x πr^{2}
= (140/360) x π(18)^{2}
= 395.64
