Please show step by step how you got to your answers to the following problems.

 

Find the radian measure of the central angle of a circle of radius r that intercepts an arc of length s.

 

 

01. r = 27 inches, s = 6 inches

 

02. r = 14.5 centimeters, s = 25 centimeters

 

Find the length of the arc on a circle of radius r intercepted by a central angle \(\Theta \).

 

03.  r = 15 inches, \(\Theta \) = 180°

 

04.  r = 3 meters, \(\Theta \) = 60°

Huh?  What kind of an answer is that?  If you do not know the answer to these questions, then do not answer.

By definition the angle in radians is given by arc length/radius, i.e. \(\theta = s/r\)

 

So, for 01:  \(\theta = 6/27 \rightarrow 0.222 \text{ radians}\)

 

 

See if you can now do the others (don't forget to convert degrees to radians first in 03 and 04).
