A chord and an arc of a circle 2014-08-06
From Luis:
Hello I am trying to figure out how to get chord lengths of quarter points for a circle. I work with large diameter circles and I need to be able to find chord length from 0 degrees to 90 degrees, 0 degrees to 270 degrees, 270 degrees to 180 degrees and 90 degrees to 180 degrees. Can you please use 100ft. diameter as example and work out the problem. I'm sorry if I use wrong terminology, I'm really bad at math . Thank you in advance for your time and help I really appreciate it.

A circle, a chord and an arc 2013-04-16
From Tim:
Morning,
I was told the chord is 3000mm and the depth of chord is 300mm, I can find the radius,(1500 squared + 300 Squared) Divided by (300 + 300) but don't know how to calculate the length of the circle defined by the chord. Regards
Tim

A space camera circles the Earth 2008-06-16
From Rita:
A space camera circles the Earth at a height of h miles above the surface. Suppose that d distance, IN MILES, on the surface of the Earth can be seen from the camera.

(a) Find an equation that relates the central angle theta to the height h.

(b) Find an equation that relates the observable distance d and theta.

(c) Find an equation that relates d and h.

(d) If d is to be 3500 miles, how high must the camera orbit above Earth?

(e) If the camera orbits at a height of 400 miles, what distance d on the surface can be seen?

Arc length and height in a circle 2007-10-23
From Bruce:
I have been trying to find a formula that relates height of a segment from the bottommost point of a circle toward the center of the circle to the corresponding distance along the circumference of the circle (i.e. at the point on the circumference intersected by a line perpendicular to that segment). The unknown variable is the height of the segment; the known variables are the radius of the circle and the distance along the circumference.

Arc lengths, central angles and radii 2007-10-04
From Ashutosh:
Jose can remember that the length of an arc is 440cm, but he cannot remember the radius of the arc or the angle at the center. He does know that the angle was a whole number of degrees and the radius was less than 100cm. Find three possible angles and write down the size of each of the possible radii.

Length of a line 1999-10-10
From Dagmara Sarudi:
My question has to do with the length of a diagonal. This problem came up when I thought about the shortest distance between two points, for example walking from one point to another in my neighborhood. I can choose a zig zag route and assuming the blocks I walk are exactly the same length, it shouldn't matter what route I took, the distance I travel should still be the same when I reached my goal. If, on the other hand I could travel in a diagonal line, the distance would be shorter. But what if, in my zig zag motion, the sections get so small the route approaches a diagonal. Shouldn't it be that each separate section added together equals the value of the two original sides? Or would it suddenly equal the value of the diagonal (which, of course was shorter than the two sides added together)?
What gives?
