Concentric circles

There is given a circle K with a radius r = 8 cm. How large must a radius have a smaller concentric circle that divides the circle K into two parts with the same area?

Correct result:

r2 =  5.657 cm


r=8 cm  S=π r2=3.1416 82201.0619 cm2  S2=S/2=201.0619/2100.531 cm2  S2=π r22  r2=S2/π=100.531/3.1416=4 2=5.657 cmr=8 \ \text{cm} \ \\ \ \\ S=\pi \cdot \ r^2=3.1416 \cdot \ 8^2 \doteq 201.0619 \ \text{cm}^2 \ \\ \ \\ S_{2}=S/2=201.0619/2 \doteq 100.531 \ \text{cm}^2 \ \\ \ \\ S_{2}=\pi \cdot \ r_{2}^2 \ \\ \ \\ r_{2}=\sqrt{ S_{2}/\pi }=\sqrt{ 100.531/3.1416 }=4 \ \sqrt{ 2 }=5.657 \ \text{cm}
