### 10th Class Maths 9th Lesson Tangents and Secants to a Circle Ex 9.3 Textbook Questions and Answers

Question 1.

A chord of a circle of radius 10 cm. subtends a right angle at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding: (use π = 3.14)

i) Minor segment ii) Major segment

Answer:

Angle subtended by the chord = 90° Radius of the circle = 10 cm

Area of the minor segment = Area of the sector POQ – Area of △POQ

Area of the sector = \(\frac{x}{360}\) × πr^{2}

\(\frac{90}{360}\) × 3.14 × 10 × 10 = 78.5

Area of the triangle = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × base × height

= \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 10 × 10 = 50

∴ Area of the minor segment = 78.5 – 50 = 28.5 cm^{2}

Area of the major segment = Area of the circle – Area of the minor segment

= 3.14 × 10 × 10 – 28.5

= 314 – 28.5 cm^{2}

= 285.5 cm^{2}

Question 2.

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

(use π = 3.14 and √3 = 1.732)

Answer:

Radius of the circle r = 12 cm.

Area of the sector = \(\frac{x}{360}\) × πr^{2}

Here, x = 120°

\(\frac{120}{360}\) × 3.14 × 12 × 12 = 150.72

Drop a perpendicular from ‘O’ to the chord PQ.

△OPM = △OQM [∵ OP = OQ ∠P = ∠Q; angles opp. to equal sides OP & OQ; ∠OMP = ∠OMQ by A.A.S]

∴ △OPQ = △OPM + △OQM = 2 . △OPM

Area of △OPM = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × PM × OM

= 18 × 1.732 = 31.176 cm

∴ △OPQ = 2 × 31.176 = 62.352 cm^{2}

∴ Area of the minor segment

= (Area of the sector) – (Area of the △OPQ)

= 150.72 – 62.352 = 88.368 cm^{2}

Question 3.

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. (use π = \(\frac{22}{7}\))

Answer:

Angle made by the each blade = 115°

Total area swept by two blades

= Area of the sector with radius 25 cm and angle 115°+ 115° = 230°

= Area of the sector = \(\frac{x}{360}\) × πr^{2}

= \(\frac{230}{360}\) × \(\frac{22}{7}\) × 25 × 25

= 1254.96

≃ 1255 cm^{2}

Question 4.

Find the area of the shaded region in figure, where ABCD is a square of side 10 cm. and semicircles are drawn with each side of the square as diameter (use π = 3.14).

Answer:

Let us mark the four unshaded regions as I, II, III and IV.

Area of I + Area of II

= Area of ABCD – Areas of two semicircles with radius 5 cm

= 10 × 10 – 2 × \(\frac{1}{2}\) × π × 5^{2}

= 100 – 3.14 × 25

= 100 – 78.5 = 21.5 cm^{2}

Similarly, Area of II + Area of IV = 21.5 cm^{2}

So, area of the shaded region = Area of ABCD – Area of unshaded region

= 100 – 2 × 21.5 = 100 – 43 = 57 cm^{2}

Question 5.

Find the area of the shaded region in figure, if ABCD is a square of side 7 cm. and APD and BPC are semicircles. (use π = \(\frac{22}{7}\))

Answer:

Given,

ABCD is a square of side 7 cm.

Area of the shaded region = Area of ABCD – Area of two semicircles with radius \(\frac{7}{2}\) = 3.5 cm

APD and BPC are semicircles.

= 7 × 7 – 2 × \(\frac{1}{2}\) × \(\frac{22}{7}\) × 3.5 × 3.5

= 49 – 38.5

= 10.5 cm^{2}

∴ Area of shaded region = 10.5 cm

Question 6.

In figure, OACB is a quadrant of a circle with centre O and radius 3.5 cm. If OD = 2 cm., find the area of the shaded region, (use π = \(\frac{22}{7}\)).

Answer:

Given, OACB is a quadrant of a Circle.

Radius = 3.5 cm; OD = 2 cm.

Area of the shaded region = Area of the sector – Area of △BOD

= 9.625 – 3.5 = 6.125 cm^{2}

∴ Area of shaded region = 6.125 cm^{2}.

Question 7.

AB and CD are respectively arcs of two concentric circles of radii 21 cm. and 7 cm. with centre O (See figure). If ∠AOB = 30°, find the area of the shaded region. (use π = \(\frac{22}{7}\)).

Answer:

Given, AB and CD are the arcs of two concentric circles.

Radii of circles = 21 cm and 7 cm and ∠AOB = 30°

We know that,

Area of the sector = \(\frac{x}{360}\) × πr^{2}

Area of the shaded region = Area of the OAB – Area of OCD

∴ Area of shaded region = 102.66 cm^{2}

Question 8.

Calculate the area of the designed region in figure, common between the two quadrants of the circles of radius 10 cm each, {use π = 3.14)

Answer:

Mark two points P, Q on the either arcs.

Let BD be a diagonal of ABCD

Now the area of the segment

= 28.5 + 28.5 = 57 cm^{2}

Side of the square = 10 cm

Area of the square = side × side

= 10 × 10 = 100 cm^{2}

Area of two sectors with centres A and C and radius 10 cm.

= 2 × \(\frac{\pi r^{2}}{360}\) × x = 2 × \(\frac{x}{360}\) × \(\frac{22}{7}\) × 10 × 10

= \(\frac{1100}{7}\)

= 157.14 cm^{2}

∴ Designed area is common to both the sectors,

∴ Area of design = Area of both sectors – Area of square

= 157 – 100 = 57 cm^{2}

(or)

\(\frac{1100}{7}\) – 100 = \(\frac{1100-700}{7}\)

= \(\frac{400}{7}\)

= 57.1 cm^{2}
