# Chord - math word problems

A chord of a circle is a straight line segment whose endpoints both lie on the circle. A chord that passes through a circle's center point is the circle's diameter. The word chord is from the Latin chorda meaning bowstring.- Two parallel chords

In a circle 70 cm in diameter, two parallel chords are drawn so that the center of the circle lies between the chords. Calculate the distance of these chords if one of them is 42 cm long and the second 56 cm. - Concentric circles and chord

In a circle with a diameter d = 10 cm, a chord with a length of 6 cm is constructed. What radius have the concentric circle while touch this chord? - Chord BC

A circle k has the center at the point S = [0; 0]. Point A = [40; 30] lies on the circle k. How long is the chord BC if the center P of this chord has the coordinates: [- 14; 0]? - Two chords

In a circle with radius r = 26 cm two parallel chords are drawn. One chord has a length t1 = 48 cm and the second has a length t2 = 20 cm, with the center lying between them. Calculate the distance of two chords. - 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. - Two parallel chords

The two parallel chords of the circle have the same length of 6 cm and are 8 cm apart. Calculate the radius of the circle. - Pavement

Calculate the length of the pavement that runs through a circular square with a diameter of 40 m if distance the pavement from the center is 15 m. - Circle annulus

There are 2 concentric circles in the figure. Chord of larger circle 10 cm long is tangent to the smaller circle. What are does annulus have? - Two chords

There is a given circle k (center S, radius r). From point A which lies on circle k are starting two chords of length r. What angle does chords make? Draw and measure. - Equation of circle 2

Find the equation of a circle which touches the axis of y at a distance 4 from the origin and cuts off an intercept of length 6 on the axis x. - Endless lego set

The endless lego set contains only 6, 9, 20 kilograms blocks that can no longer be polished or broken. The workers took them to the gym and immediately started building different buildings. And of course, they wrote down how much the building weighed. The - Tangent

What distance is the tangent t of the circle (S, 4 cm) and the chord of this circle, which is 6 cm long and parallel to the tangent t? - Chord

It is given to a circle k(r=6 cm) and the points A, B such that / AB / = 8 cm lies on k. Calculate the distance of the center of circle S to the midpoint C of the segment AB. - Circle's chords

In the circle there are two chord length 30 and 34 cm. The shorter one is from the center twice than longer chord. Determine the radius of the circle. - Chors centers

The circle with a diameter 17 cm, upper chord /CD/ = 10.2 cm and bottom chord /EF/ = 7.5 cm. The midpoints of the chords H, G is that /EH/ = 1/2 /EF/ and /CG/ = 1/2 /CD/. Determine the distance between the G and H, if CD II EF (parallel). - Circle chord

Calculate the length of the chord of the circle with radius r = 10 cm, length of which is equal to the distance from the center of the circle. - Chord 5

It is given circle k / S; 5 cm /. Its chord MN is 3 cm away from the center of the circle . Calculate its length. - Chord circle

The circle to the (S, r = 8 cm) are different points A, B connected segment /AB/ = 12 cm. AB mark the middle of S'. Calculate |SS'|. Make the sketch. - Circular pool

The base of the pool is a circle with a radius r = 10 m, excluding a circular segment that determines the chord length 10 meters. The pool depth is h = 2m. How many hectoliters of water can fit into the pool? - Chord distance

The circle k (S, 6 cm), calculate the chord distance from the center circle S when the length of the chord is t = 10 cm.
