9.  A brooch is made with silver wire in the form of a circle with diameter 35 mm. The wire is also used in making 5 diameters which divide the circle into 10 equal sectors as shown in Fig. 12.12. Find :

(ii) the area of each sector of the brooch.

Views

The total number of lines present in the brooch are 10 (line starting from centre).

Thus the angle of each sector is 36o.

The area of sector is given by :-

$\\Area\ =\ \frac{\Theta}{360^{\circ}}\ \times \pi r^2\\\\Area=\ \frac{36^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\ \times \pi \times \left ( \frac{35}{2} \right )^2\\\\Area=\ \frac{385}{4}\ mm^2$
