**CBSE Areas Related to Circles Class 10th Formula**

###### Answers:

Circumference or perimeter of a circle: The total length of boundary of a circle is called its circumference. Circumference of a circle = 2πr ; where ‘ r ’ is radius of the circle

• Area of circle : Area of circle of radius r = πr^{2}

• Area of semicircle = ½ (Area of circle) = ½ πr^{2}

• Area of quadrant = ¼ × Area of circle = πr^{2}/4^{ }

• Perimeter of Semicircle = ½ (Circumference of semicircle) + Diameter

= πr + 2r = (π + 2)r

^{ }**Area of a ring or Area enclosed between two concentric circles:**

If ‘R’ is radius of outer circle and ‘r’ is radius of smaller (inner) circle. Then area enclosed between two concentric circles (or area of ring)

= πR^{2} – πr^{2}

= π(R^{2} – r^{2})

**Length of arc, area of sector and segment:** Let us consider an arc AB making an angle θ <180° at the centre of a circle of radius ‘r’. Then

(i) Length of arc ACB = 2πrθ/360°= *l*

(b) Area of major segment BDAB = (Area of the circle) – (Area of the minor segment ACBA) Rotating wheels:

<!–[if !supportLists]–>(i) Distance moved by a wheel in 1 rotation = Circumference of wheel

<!–[if !supportLists]–>(ii) Number of rotations in 1 minute = Distance moved in 1 minute/Circumference

• Rotations of the hands of a clock:

<!–[if !supportLists]–>(i) Angle described by the minute – hand of a clock in 60 minutes = 360°

<!–[if !supportLists]–>(ii) Angle described by the hour – hand of a clock in 12 hours = 360°
