Solutions

(i)  We know that

$l = r \theta$
Now,
r = 75cm
l = 10cm

So,
$\theta = \frac{l}{r} = \frac{10}{75} = \frac{2}{15}radian$

(ii)   We know that

$l = r \theta$
Now,
r = 75cm
l = 15cm

So,
$\theta = \frac{l}{r} = \frac{15}{75} = \frac{1}{5}radian$

(iii)  We know that

$l = r \theta$
Now,
r = 75cm
l = 21cm

So,
$\theta = \frac{l}{r} = \frac{21}{75} = \frac{7}{25}radian$
