Central Angle – of a circle is an angle

whose vertex is the center of the circle.

The sum of all central angles of a circle is 3600.


Radians

Given: radius r

Arc AB = r

1 radian

If the length of arc AB

measures r, then the

substitute the

given values

Model Problem

In a circle, the length of a radius is 4

centimeters. Find the length of an arc

intercepted by a central angle whose

measure is 1.5 radians.

solve for s

s = 6 cm.


Model problem1

Model Problem

A weather satellite in a circular orbit around Earth completes one orbit every 3 hours. The radius of the Earth is about 6400 km, and the satellite is positioned 2600 km above Earth. How far does the satellite travel in 1 hour.

s

since one complete

rotation takes 3 hr.,

the satellite completes

1/3 of a rotation in 1hr.

r

s = distance traveled in 1 hr.

r = 6400 + 2600 = 9000
