13.3 – Radian Measures

Find the circumference of a circle with the given radius or diameter. Round your answer to the nearest tenth.

1.radius 4 in.2.diameter 70 m

3.radius 8 mi4.diameter 3.4 ft

5.radius 5 mm6.diameter 6.3 cm

1. C = 2 r = 2 (4 in.) 25.1 in.

2.C = d = (70 m) 219.9 m

3.C = 2 r = 2 (8 mi) 50.3 mi

4.C = d = (3.4 ft) 10.7 ft

5.C = 2 r = 2 (5 mm) 31.4 mm

6.C = d = (6.3 cm) 19.8 cm

Solutions

- A central angle of a circle is an angle with a vertex at the center of the circle.
- An intercepted arc is the arc that is “captured” by the central angle.

- When the central angle intercepts an arc that has the same length as a radius of the circle, the measure of the angle is defined as a radian.

Like degrees, radians measure the amount of rotation from the initial side to the terminal side of the angle.

This proportion can be used to convert to and from

Degrees to Radians.

Since one complete rotation (orbit) takes 4 h, the satellite completes of a rotation in 1 h.

Another satellite completes one orbit around Earth every 4 h. The satellite orbits 2900 km above Earth’s surface. How far does the satellite travel in 1 h?

Step 1:Find the radius of the satellite’s orbit.

r = 6400 + 2900Add the radius of Earth and the distance from Earth’s surface to the satellite.

= 9300

Step 2: Find the measure of the central angle the satellite travels through in 1 h.
