C. Arcs and Sectors on Circles
Important application of a radian measure
-Stated in an elementary theorem in geometry
“On a circle of radius r, a central angle ( an angle whose vertex is the center
of the circle) of θ radius intercepts an arc whose length is equal to the
product of θ and r.”

s = rθ, θ in radians
Equivalent formulas
θ = s/r , θ in radians
r = s/θ

Areas of Sectors of Circle
Sector
-a part of a circle between two radii with the given central angle

Area of a Circle
A = πr2 = 1 ( 2π ) r2 , where 2π is the angle for the
θ 2 complete circle

A = 1 r2θ

θ – denotes the central angle of the circle in radian
measure
Review of Plane Figures
D. Similar Figures
 If the corresponding angles in two figures are equal, it only means that
they have the same shape though not necessarily of the same size. Such
relation ships is called similar figures.
 Two segments are proportional if there exists a positive integer
k, such that the length of one segment is k times the length of the other.

##  The proportion property of two similar figures is that a

correspondence exists between the figures in such a way that every
segment in the first has a length that is k times that of its corresponding
segment in the other.
Example:
If length L1 = 12 and L2 = 18 then there L1
exists an integer k = 6 (common
factor)such that the ratio of the two L2
lengths is 2:3.

- A surface such that a straight line joining any two points in it lies
wholly in the surface
- Understood to be indefinite in extent, but usually represented by a
parallelogram lying in the plane
- May be designated by a single small letter at one vertex or two
capital letters at opposite vertices

A line and a plane are parallel if they cannot meet, far
they are produced. Some essential theorems on parallel lines
planes are as follows:
Theorem 2.1.6.

Theorem 2.1.7.
Any plane containing one of two parallel line is parallel to the
other.
Theorem 2.1.8.
If a line is parallel to a plane, the intersection of a plane with
any plane passed through the given line is parallel to the line.

parallel and lying on the same side of the line joining their
vertices, they are equal, and their planes are parallel.

Locus
Locus in three-dimensional space, as well as in two-dimensional
plane is defined

satisfies certain conditions that contain all such points.

• Locus in Plane

given point is a circle having the given point as
center and the distance as radius.

## b. The locus of points at a given distance from

points is the perpendicular bisector of the line
segment, joining the two points.
