Practice Set 7.3 Geometry Class 10 Question 1.
Radius of a circle is 10 cm. Measure of an arc of the circle is 54°. Find the area of the sector associated with the arc. (π = 3.14)
Given : Radius (r) = 10 cm,
Measure of the arc (θ) = 54°
To find : Area of the sector.
Solution:
Area of sector = $$\frac{\theta}{360} \times \pi r^{2}$$
= $$\frac { 54 }{ 360 }$$ × 3.14 × (10)2
= $$\frac { 3 }{ 20 }$$ × 3.14 × 100
= 3 × 3.14 × 5
= 15 × 3.14
= 47.1 cm2
∴ The area of the sector is 47.1 cm2.

Mensuration Practice Set 7.3 Question 2.
Measure of an arc of a circle is 80° and its radius is 18 cm. Find the length of the arc. (π = 3.14)
Given: Radius (r) = 18 cm,
Measure of the arc (θ) = 80°
To find: Length of the arc.
Solution:
Length of arc = $$\frac{\theta}{360} \times 2 \pi r$$ × 2πr
= $$\frac { 8 }{ 360 }$$ × 2 × 3.14 × 18
= $$\frac { 2 }{ 9 }$$ × 2 × 3.14 × 18
= 2 × 2 × 3.14 × 2 = 25.12 cm
∴ The length of the arc is 25.12 cm.

Practice Set 7.3 Geometry Question 3.
Radius of a sector of a circle is 3.5 cm and length of its arc is 2.2 cm. Find the area of the sector.
Solution:
Given: Radius (r) = 3.5 cm,
length of arc (l) = 2.2 cm
To find: Area of the sector.
Solution:
Area of sector = $$\frac{l \times \mathrm{r}}{2}$$
= $$\frac{2.2 \times 3.5}{2}$$
= 1.1 × 3.5 = 3.85 cm2
∴ The area of the sector is 3.85 cm2.

Question 4.
Radius of a circle is 10 cm. Area of a sector of the circle is 100 cm2. Find the area of its corresponding major sector, (π = 3.14)
Given: Radius (r) = 10 cm,
area of minor sector =100 cm2
To find: Area of maj or sector.
Solution:
Area of circle = πr2
= 3.14 × (10)2
= 3.14 × 100 = 314 cm2
Now, area of major sector
= area of circle – area of minor sector
= 314 – 100
= 214 cm2
∴ The area of the corresponding major sector is 214 cm2.

Question 5.

Practice Set 7.3 Question 6.
In the adjoining figure, radius of the circle is 7 cm and m (arc MBN) = 60°, find
i. Area of the circle.
ii. A(O-MBN).
iii. A(O-MCN).

Given: radius (r) = 7 cm,
m(arc MBN) = θ = 60°
Solution:
i. Area of circle = πr2
= $$\frac { 22 }{ 7 }$$ × (7)2
= 22 × 7
= 154 cm2
∴ The area of the circle is 154 cm2

ii. Central angle (θ) = ∠MON = 60°
Area of sector = $$\frac{\theta}{360} \times \pi r^{2}$$
∴ A(O – MBN) = $$\frac { 60 }{ 360 }$$ × $$\frac { 22 }{ 7 }$$ × (7)2
$$\frac { 1 }{ 6 }$$ × 22 × 7
= 25.67 cm2
= 25.7 cm2
∴ A(O-MBN) = 25.7 cm2

iii. Area of major sector = area of circle – area of minor sector
∴ A(O-MCN) = Area of circle – A(O-MBN)
= 154 – 25.7
∴ A(O-MCN) = 128.3 cm2

Question 7.
In the adjoining figure, radius of circle is 3.4 cm and perimeter of sector P-ABC is 12.8 cm. Find A(P-ABC).
Given: Radius (r) = 3.4 cm,
perimeter of sector 12.8 cm
To find: A(P-ABC)

Solution:
Perimeter of sector
= Iength of arc ABC + AP + CP

∴ 12.8 = l + 3.4 + 3.4
∴ 12.8 = l + 6.8
∴ l = 12.8 – 6.8 = 6cm

∴ A(P-ABC) = 10.2 cm2

In the adjoining figure, O is the centre of the sector. ∠ROQ = ∠MON = 60°. OR = 7 cm, and OM = 21 cm. Find the lengths of arc RXQ and (π = $$\frac { 22 }{ 7 }$$)

Given: ∠ROQ = ∠MON = 60°,
radius (r) = OR = 7 cm, radius (R) = OM = 21 cm
To find: Lengths of arc RXQ and arc MYN.
Solution:
i. Length of arc RXQ = $$\frac{\theta}{360} \times 2 \pi r$$
= $$\frac { 60 }{ 2 }$$ × 2 × $$\frac { 22 }{ 7 }$$ × 7
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 6 }$$ × 2 × 22
= 7.33 cm
ii. Length of arc MYN = $$\frac{\theta}{360} \times 2 \pi R$$
= $$\frac { 60 }{ 2 }$$ × 2 × $$\frac { 22 }{ 7 }$$ × 21
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 6 }$$ × 2 × 22 × 3
= 22 cm
∴ The lengths of arc RXQ and arc MYN are 7.33 cm and 22 cm respectively.

10th Geometry Practice Set 7.3 Question 12.
In the given figure, ꠸PQRS is a rectangle. If PQ = 14 cm, QR = 21 cm, find the areas of the parts x, y and z.

Given: In rectangle PQRS,
PQ = 14 cm, QR = 21 cm
To find: Areas of the parts x, y and z.
Solution:

∠Q = ∠R = θ = 90° …[Angles of a rectangle]

For the sector (Q – PA),
PQ = QA …[Radii of the same circle]
∴ QA = 14 cm
Now, QR = QA + AR … [Q – A – R]
∴ 21 = 14 + AR
∴ AR = 7 cm

Area of rectangle = length × breadth
area of ꠸PQRS = PQ × QR
= 14 × 21
= 294 cm2
Area of part z = area of ꠸PQRS
– area of part x – area of part y
= 294 – 154 – 38.5
= 101.5 cm2
∴ The area of part x is 154 cm2, the area of part y is 38,5 cm2 and the area of part z is 101.5 cm2.

i. A (∆ LMN).
ii. Area of any one of the sectors.
iii. Total area of all the three sectors.
iv. Area of the shaded region. ($$\sqrt { 3 }$$ = 1.732 )
Given: In equilateral triangle LMN, LM =14 cm,
radius of sectors (r) = 7 cm
Solution:
i. ∆LMN is an equilateral triangle.

ii. Central angle (θ) = 60° …[Angle of an equilateral triangle]

∴ Area of one sector = 25.67 cm2
iii. Total area of all three sectors
= 3 × Area of one sector
= 3 × 25.67
= 77.01 cm2
∴ Total area of all three sectors = 77.01 cm2
= A(∆LMN) – total area of all three sectors
= 84.87 – 77.01
= 7.86 cm2
∴ Area of shaded region = 7.86 cm
