### Areas related to Circles Class 10 Notes Understanding the Lesson

1. Circle: Circle is set of all points in a plane which are at the fixed distance from a fixed point i.e., centre. Centre: Mid-point of a circle is called centre of a circle.

2. Radius: The distance between the centre of a circle to the circumference of the circle.
It is denoted by r or R.

3. Chord: A line segment which joins the two points in the circumference of the circle.

4. Diameter: It is the longest chord which passes through the centre of a circle. It is denoted by d or D.
$$\text { Radius }=\frac{\text { Diameter }}{2}$$

5. Circumference of a Circle (or Perimeter)
A perimeter is a path that surrounds a two dimensional shape.
The perimeter of a circle is called its circumference. Circumference
$$\frac{\text { Circumference }}{\text { Diameter }}=\pi$$
Circumference = n x diameter = π x 2r = 2πr
or
The value of π is $$\frac{22}{7}$$ or 3.14 (approximately)

6. Arc: An arc is the part of the circumference of a circle.
An arc AB is denoted as $$\widehat{\mathrm{AB}}$$

Length of arc AB is l $$\widehat{\mathrm{AB}}$$ or l.
Length of an arc of a sector of angle
$$\theta=\frac{2 \pi r \theta}{360^{\circ}}$$

7. Sector: The portion (or part) of circular region enclosed by two radii and the corresponding arc is called a sector of the circle.

8. Minor and Major sector of the circle: Shaded region OAPB is called sector or minor sector of a circle with centre O.
∠AOB is called angle of the sector.

And OAQB is called major sector.
Angle of major sector = 360° – ∠AOB.

9. Area of Circle

Let r be the radius of circle. If we cut the circle in sectors and arrange then we see this figure like a rectangle whose length is $$\frac{1}{2}$$ 2πr = πr and breadth is r.
Hence,
Area of circle = Area of rectangle
= l x b = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ 2πr = r
Area of circle = πr2

10. Segment: The portion or part of a circular region enclosed between a chord and the corresponding arc is called a segment of the circle.
The shaded region APB is the minor segment.
And the region AQB is the major segment.
Area of circle = πr2
Area of the sector of an angle $$\theta=\frac{\pi r^{2} \theta}{360^{\circ}}$$

Area of major sector = Area of circle – Area of minor sector
Area of minor segment = Area of sector – Area of ΔOAB$$\frac{\pi r^{2} \theta}{360^{\circ}}$$– area of ΔOAB
Area of major segment = Area of circle – Area of minor segment

11. Area of Combinations of Plane Figures
In our daily life we have observed various plane figures which are combinations of two or more figures and i also in the form of various interesting designs like flower beds, curtains, drain covers, window designs, ] designs on table covers.  To calculate areas of such figures, we field the area of shapes used and then and/subtract as per need.
