Area of Circles

Exercise 2

Question: 1. Find the area of a sector of a circle with radius 6 cm if angle of the sector is 60°.

circle 22

Question: 2. Find the area of a quadrant of a circle whose circumference is 22 cm.

circle 23

Question: 3. The length of the minute hand of a clock is 14 cm. Find the area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes.

circle 24

Question: 4. A chord of a circle of radius 10 cm subtends a right angle at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding :

(i) minor segment (ii) major sector.

circle 25

5. In a circle of radius 21 cm, an arc subtends an angle of 60° at the centre. Find:

(i) the length of the arc

(ii) area of the sector formed by the arc

(iii) area of the segment formed by the corresponding chord

6. A chord of a circle of radius 15 cm subtends an angle of 60° at the centre. Find the areas of the corresponding minor and major segments of the circle.

circle 29

Area of minor segment = 117.75 – 97.425 =20.325 sqcm

Area of major segment = 706.5 – 20.325 = 686.175 sqcm

7. A chord of a circle of radius 12 cm subtends an angle of 120° at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding segment of the circle.

circle 30
circle 31

Area of minor segment = 150.72 – 62.352= 88.368 sqcm

8. A horse is tied to a peg at one corner of a square shaped grass field of side 15 m by means of a 5 m long rope. Find

(i) the area of that part of the field in which the horse can graze.

circle 32

(ii) the increase in the grazing area if the rope were 10 m long instead of 5 m.

circle 33

As radius is doubled so area is quadruples, so there is an increase of 300% in area

78.625 – 19.625 = 58.875 sqcm

9. A brooch is made with silver wire in the form of a circle with diameter 35 mm. The wire is also used in making 5 diameters which divide the circle into 10 equal sectors. Find :

(i) the total length of the silver wire required.

circle 34

10. An umbrella has 8 ribs which are equally spaced. Assuming umbrella to be a flat circle of radius 45 cm, find the area between the two consecutive ribs of the umbrella.

circle 35

11. A car has two wipers which do not overlap. Each wiper has a blade of length 25 cm sweeping through an angle of 115°. Find the total area cleaned at each sweep of the blades.

circle 36

12. To warn ships for underwater rocks, a lighthouse spreads a red coloured light over a sector of angle 80° to a distance of 16.5 km. Find the area of the sea over which the ships are warned.

circle 37

13. A round table cover has six equal designs as shown in the figure. If the radius of the cover is 28 cm, find the cost of making the designs at the rate of Rs 0.35 per cm2.
