Unit 12 Areas Related to Circles Exercise 12.1, 12.2, 12.3 Solutions

As proved by Archimedes, the area enclosed by a circle is equal to that of a triangle whose base has the length of the circle's circumference and whose height equals the circle's radius, which comes to π multiplied by the radius squared: Area = π r2

The circle is the plane curve enclosing the maximum area for a given arc length. This relates the circle to a problem in the calculus of variations, namely the isoperimetric inequality.

Exercise 12.1 : Solutions of Questions on Page Number : 225

Q1 :  

The radii of two circles are 19 cm and 9 cm respectively. Find the radius of the circle which has circumference equal to the sum of the circumferences of the two circles.


Answer :

Radius (r1) of 1st circle = 19 cm

Radius (r2) or 2nd circle = 9 cm

Let the radius of 3rd circle be r.

Circumference of 1st circle = 2πr1 = 2π (19) = 38π

Circumference of 2nd circle = 2πr2 = 2π (9) = 18π

Circumference of 3rd circle = 2πr

Given that,

Circumference of 3rd circle = Circumference of 1st circle + Circumference of 2nd circle

r = 38π + 18π = 56π

Therefore, the radius of the circle which has circumference equal to the sum of the circumference of the given two circles is 28 cm.

Q2 :  

The radii of two circles are 8 cm and 6 cm respectively. Find the radius of the circle having area equal to the sum of the areas of the two circles.


Answer :

Radius (r1) of 1st circle = 8 cm

Radius (r2) of 2nd circle = 6 cm

Let the radius of 3rd circle be r.

Area of 1st circle

Area of 2nd circle

Given that,

Area of 3rd circle = Area of 1st circle + Area of 2nd circle

However, the radius cannot be negative. Therefore, the radius of the circle having area equal to the sum of the areas of the two circles is 10 cm.
