## Problem 1111

Find the central angle θ which forms a sector of area 21 square feet of a circle of radius 11 feet.

Solution:-

A central angle is an angle whose vertex is at the center of a circle. The rays of a central angle subtend (intersect) an arc on the circle. The part of the circle between the rays of the angle and the arc subtended is called a sector.

Area of a sector

The area A of sector of a circle of radius r formed by a central angle of θ radians is equal to the following

A = r2 θ

Solving for θ given θ = .

Substitute the values for A and r, and simplify.

0.347

Therefore, the central angle θ which forms a sector of area 21 square feet of a circle of radius 11 feet is θ = 0.347 radians.

## Problem 1110

Find the area A of the sector of a radius 30 feet formed by the central angle radian.

Solution:-

A central angle is an angle whose vertex is at the center of a circle. The rays of a central angle subtend (intersect) an arc on the circle. The part of the circle between the rays of the angle and the arc subtended is called a sector. We have the following theorem.

Area of a sector

The area A of sector of a circle of radius r formed by a central angle of θ radians is

A = r2 θ

The value of r in the formula is 30 feet.

The value of θ in the formula is radian.

Therefore,

## Problem 1108

Find the central angle θ which subtends an arc of length 53 miles of a circle of radius 51 miles.

Solution:-

A central angle is an angle whose vertex is at the center of a circle. The rays of a central of a circle. The rays of a central angle subtend (intersect) an arc on the circle. The arc length for a circle of radius r and a central angle of θ radians is given by s = r θ.

Solving this expression for θ given θ = . Substitute the values for s and r.

θ =

Therefore, the central angle which subtends an arc of length 53 miles of a circle of radius 51 miles is θ = 1.039 radians.

## Problem 1107

Find the length s of the arc of a circle of radius 75 meters subtended by the central angle radian.

Solution:-

A central angle is an angle whose vertex is at the center of a circle. The rays of a central angle subtend (intersect) an arc on the circle. We have the following theorem.

Arc Length

For a circle of radius r, a central angle of θ radians subtends an arc whose length s is

s = r θ

the value of r in the formula is 75 meters.

The value of θ in the formula is radian.

s(arc length) = 75 meters * radian

= 3 meters

## Problem 1106

5.63

Solution:-

Consider a circle of radius r. A central angle of a revolution (360°) will subtend an arc equal to the circumference of the circle. Because the circumference of the circle equal 2πr, we see that 360° = 2π radians, or 180° = π radians. Dividing both sides by π, we have the following conversion formula.

Converting form radians to degrees can be summarized as follows.

Therefore, the following is true.

= 5.63 * degrees

322.58°

## Problem 1105

Convert the angle in degrees to radians.

-19°

Solution:-

Consider a circle of radius r. A central angle of a revolution (360°) will subtend an arc equal to the circumference of the circle. Because the circumference of the circle equal 2πr, we see that 360° = 2π radians, or 180° = π radians.

Converting form degrees to radians can be summarized as follows.

Now convert the given angle in degrees to radians. Use the formula from above to write 1 degree in radians.

-19° = -19 * 1 degree
