if the area is 16pi then the lenght of the circle is 8pi and respectively the lenght of the arc required is 8pi/8 or pi

pi r^2 = 16 pi
r=4

n/360 * 2pi*r = length of arc

length of arc = 45/360 * 2*pi*4

= pi

Is the length of an arc formula something I should memorize?

Would be nice to do,
Quite easy really.

length of arc = (n/360) * circumference of circle.
area of a sector = (n/360) * area of circle

n is the internal angle.

i got pi * r^2 = 16 pi

so r = 4

2 pi r = 8 pi

so 45 degree = 8 pi* 45/360 = pi

Pi [#permalink] New post 02 Dec 2005, 14:22
Circumference of circle(360degree)=2pir
Circumference of circle(45degree)=2Pi*r/8=Pi*r/4

Area= 16Pi
Pi*(r^2)=16Pi
R=4

Circumference of arc= Pi*4/4=Pi

S(circle)=pi*r^2=16pi;r=4

Circumference=2pi*r=8pi

Length (arc)=fraction (Arc/360)*Circumference
l(arc)=45/360*8pi=1/8*8pi=pi
