Circular arc - examples
- Track arc
Two straight tracks is in an angle 74°. They will join with circular arc with radius r=1127 m. How long will be arc connecting these lines (L)? How far is the center point of arc from track crossings (x)?
Calculate span of the arc, which is part of a circle with diameter d = 20 m and its height is 6 m.
- A bridge
A bridge over a river is in the shape of the arc of a circle with each base of the bridge at the river's edge. At the center of the river, the bridge is 10 feet above the water. At 27 feet from the edge of the river, the bridge is 9 feet above the water. H
- Circular arc
Calculate the length of the circular arc if the diameter d = 20cm and the angle alpha = 142 °
- The big clock
The big clock hands stopped at a random moment. What is the probability that: a) a small hand showed the time between 1:00 and 3:00? b) the big hand was in the same area as a small hand in the role of a)? c) did the hours just show the time between 21:00.
