**Question 1.
**

**AB is a chord of a circle with centre O and radius 4 cm. AB is of length 4 cm and divides the circle into two segments. Find the area of the minor segment.**

**Solution:**

Radius of the circle (r) = 4 cm

Length of the chord AB = 4 cm

∴ In ΔOAB

OA = OB = AB (each = 4 cm)

**Question 2.
**

**A chord PQ of length 12 cm subtends an angle of 120° at the centre of a circle. Find the area of the minor segment cut off by the chord PQ.**

**Solution:**

Length of chord PQ = 12 cm

Angle at the centre (θ) = 120°

∵ Draw OD ⊥ DQ

which bisects PQ at D and also bisects ∠POQ

**Question 3.
**

**A chord of a circle of radius 14 cm makes a right angle at the centre. Find the areas of the minor and major segments of the circle.**

**Solution:**

Radius of the circle (r) = 14 cm

Angle at the centre (θ) = 90°

**Question 4.
**

**A ehord 10 cm long is drawn in a circle whose radius is 5\(\sqrt { 2 } \)**

cm. Find area of both the segments. (Take π = 3.14).

cm. Find area of both the segments. (Take π = 3.14).

**Solution:**

Radius of the circle (r) = 5\(\sqrt { 2 } \) cm

And length of chord AB = 10 cm

**Question 5.
**

**A chord AB of a circle, of radius 14 cm makes an angle of 60° at the centre of the circle. Find the area of the minor segment of the circle. (Use π = 22/7)**

**Solution:**

Radius of the circle (r) – 14 cm

Angle at the centre subtended in the fnui

AB = 60°

**Question 6.
**

**Find the area of the minor segment of a circle of radius 14 cm, when the angle of the corresponding sector is 60°. [NCERT Exemplar]**

**Solution:**

Given that, radius of circle (r) = 14 cm

**Question 7.
**

**A chord of a circle of radius 20 cm subtends an angle of 90° at the centre. Find the area of the corresponding major segment of the circle. (Use π = 3.14) [NCERT Exemplar]**

**Solution:**

Let AB be the chord of a circle of radius 10 cm,

with O as the centre of the circle.

**Question 8.
**

**The radius of a circle with centre O is 5 cm (see figure). Two radii OA and OB are drawn at right angles to each other. Find the areas of the segments made by the chord AB (Take π = 3.14).**

**Solution:**

Radius of the circle (r) = 5 cm

∵ OA and OB are at right angle

∴ ∠AOB = 90°

∵ Chord AB makes two segments which are minor segment and major segment Now area of minor segment

**Question 9.
**

**AB is the diameter of a circle, centre O. C is a point on the circumference such that ∠COB = 0. The area of the minor segment cut off by AC is equal to twice the area of the sector BOC. Prove that**

**Solution:**

**Question 10.
**

**A chord of a circle subtends an angle of 0 at the centre of the circle. The area of the minor segment cut off by the chord is one eighth of the area of the circle. Prove that**

**Solution:**

Let chord AB subtends angle 0 at the centre

of a circle with radius r

Now area of the circle = nr

^{1 }and area of the minor segment ACB
