Question 1
Find the circumference and Area of the circle whose radius are gives below
(a) 21 cm
(b) 6.3 cm
(c) 14 mm
(d) 28 cm
(e) 49 cm
(f) 77 mm
Take π = 22/7 in all the above questions Solution

Question 8
A well of diameter 150 cm has a stone parapet around it. If the length of the outer edge of the parapet is 616 cm, find the width of the parapet. Solution

Radius of Outer Circle=Circumference/2π= 616/2 π = 98 cm
Radius of the inner circle= Diameter/2 = 150/2= 75 cm
The width of the parapet= 98-75=23 cm

Question 9
A thin wire is in the form of an equilateral triangle of side 11 cm. Find the area of a circle whose circumference is equal to the length of the wire. Solution

Length of thin wire= Perimeter of equilateral triangle= 3 × 11= 33 cm
Now
Radius of the circle= Circumference/2π = 33/2 π = 5.25 cm
Area of circle = π r^{2} = 86.625 cm^{2}

Question 10.
Find the area of a circle whose circumference is same as the perimeter of square of side 22 cm. Solution

Perimeter of Square = 88 cm
Now
Radius of the circle= Circumference/2π = 88/2 π = 14 cm
Area of circle = π r^{2} = 616 cm^{2}

Question 11.
Two circles have areas in the ratio 16 : 121. Find the ratio of their circumference and diameter

Question 12.
Find the circumference of a wheel whose radius is 49 cm. Find the distance covered in 120 seconds, if it revolves 5 times per second. Solution

circumference of a wheel= 2 π r = 2 π (49) = 308 cm
Distance covered in 1 round= circumference of a wheel
Wheel covers 5 revolutions in 1 sec
So , it does 600 revolutions in 120 sec
Now Distance covered in 1 round is 308 cm
Then Distance covered in 600 round will be 308 × 600 = 184800 cm = 1848 m

Question 13.
The radius of a wheel is 63 cm. Find the number of turns required to cover a distance of 1584 m. Solution

Circumference=2 π r = 2 π (63) = 396 cm
Distance covered in 1 round= circumference of a wheel
So total turns required = 158400/396=400 turns
