Two chords

Calculate the length of chord AB and perpendicular chord BC to circle if AB is 4 cm from the center of the circle and BC 8 cm from the center of the circle.

Result

a =  16 cm
b =  8 cm

Solution:

h1=4 cm h2=8 cm   r2=h12+h22  r=h12+h22=42+82=4 5 cm8.9443 cm  D=2 r=2 8.9443=8 5 cm17.8885 cm  a<D,b<D  r2=h12+(a/2)2   a=2 r2h12=2 8.9443242=16=16  cm h_{ 1 } = 4 \ cm \ \\ h_{ 2 } = 8 \ cm \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ r^2 = h_{ 1 }^2 + h_{ 2 }^2 \ \\ \ \\ r = \sqrt{ h_{ 1 }^2 + h_{ 2 }^2 } = \sqrt{ 4^2 + 8^2 } = 4 \ \sqrt{ 5 } \ cm \doteq 8.9443 \ cm \ \\ \ \\ D = 2 \cdot \ r = 2 \cdot \ 8.9443 = 8 \ \sqrt{ 5 } \ cm \doteq 17.8885 \ cm \ \\ \ \\ a<D, b<D \ \\ \ \\ r^2 = h_{ 1 }^2 + (a/2)^2 \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ a = 2 \cdot \ \sqrt{ r^2 - h_{ 1 }^2 } = 2 \cdot \ \sqrt{ 8.9443^2 - 4^2 } = 16 = 16 \ \text { cm }
r2=h22+(b/2)2  b=2 r2h22=2 8.9443282=8=8  cm r^2 = h_{ 2 }^2 + (b/2)^2 \ \\ \ \\ b = 2 \cdot \ \sqrt{ r^2 - h_{ 2 }^2 } = 2 \cdot \ \sqrt{ 8.9443^2 - 8^2 } = 8 = 8 \ \text { cm }

Looking for help with calculating roots of a quadratic equation? Do you have a linear equation or system of equations and looking for its solution? Or do you have quadratic equation? Do you want to convert length units? Pythagorean theorem is the base for the right triangle calculator. See also our trigonometric triangle calculator.
