 Question from prema: I am having only chord length as 2cm. how to find arc length and degree

Hi Prema,

Having only the chord length you can't determine that arc length and central angle. In my diagram below there is a lie segment $AB$ and three circles, each of which has $AB$ as a chord with different arc lengths and different central angles.
