### 6.7 Circumference & Arc Length

Circumference
• Defn. – the distance around a circle.
• Thm. 6.19 – Circumference of a Circle –

C = 2r or C = d

* Always use the  button on your calculator, NOT 3.14!!!

C = d

C = (12)

C = 12

C = 37.70 cm

C = 2r

C = 2(6)

C = 12

C = 37.70 cm

* If asked to leave your answer in terms of , the result would look like this.

Ex: Find the circumference of a circle with a diameter of 12 cm. (Round to 2 decimal places.)

OR

cm

C = 2r

52 = 2r

52/2 = r

8.28 in.  r

C = d

52 = d

52/ = d

16.55 in.  d

So,

r  16.55/2

r  8.28 in.

OR

Arc Length
• Defn. – a portion of the circumference of a circle.
• The measure of an arc is in degrees.
• The length of an arc is in linear units. (such as ft, cm, etc.)
Arc Length Corollary

(

• The length of AB is:

(

Arc Length Corollary Observations
• The length of a semicircle is ½ the circumference.
• The length of a 90o arc is ¼ the circumference.

180o

90o
