10.6 Circles

and

Arcs

Objective: Find the measures

of central angles and arcs.

A CIRCLEis the set of all points equidistant from a given point called the center.

This is circle P for Pacman.

Circle P

Central angle

A CENTRAL ANGLEof a circle is an angle with its vertex at the center of the circle.

Arc

An arc is a part of a circle. In this case it is the part Pacman would eat. 

Semicircle ABC

m ABC = 180

One type of arc, a semicircle, is half of a circle.

A minor arc is smaller than a semicircle. A major arc is greater than a semicircle.

less than 180

more than 180

LMN is a major arc. mLMN =

360 – mLN

RS is a minor arc.

mRS = m RPS.

The measure of a central angle is equal to its intercepted arc.

Find the measure of each arc.

• BC = 32
• BD = 90
• ABC = 180
• AB = 148

Here is a circle graph that shows how people really spend their time. Find the measure of each central angle in degrees.

• Sleep
• Food
• Work
• Must Do
• Entertainment
• Other
