## What is corresponding segment of circle?

A circle segment splits it into two parts, namely the large segment and the small segment. As shown in figure. Hence, the corresponding segment is the part of the circular area between the chord and the accompanying arc is referred to as the circular section.

**What is the formula of area of segment of a circle?**

Area of a Segment of a Circle Formula

Formula To Calculate Area of a Segment of a Circle | |
---|---|

Area of a Segment in Radians | A = (½) × r2 (θ – Sin θ) |

Area of a Segment in Degrees | A = (½) × r 2 × [(π/180) θ – sin θ] |

**What is segment of a circle class 9?**

A segment of a circle is defined as a region bounded by the chord and the corresponding arc lying between the endpoints of the chord. In other words, we can define it as a region of a circle, by breaking the circle through a secant of chord.

### What is chord of the circle?

A chord of a circle is a straight line segment whose endpoints both lie on a circular arc. More generally, a chord is a line segment joining two points on any curve, for instance, an ellipse. A chord that passes through a circle’s center point is the circle’s diameter.

**Which is an example of a circular segment?**

Circular segment – is an area of a circle which is “cut off” from the rest of the circle by a secant (chord). On the picture: L – arc length. h- height. c- chord.

**Is the semicircle the biggest segment of a circle?**

Yes, semicircle can be termed as a segment. It is the biggest segment of a circle. Also, for a semicircle, the diameter divides the circle the area covered by the sector is also the area covered by the segment.

## How to calculate the area of a segment of a circle?

The formulas for a circle’s segment are as follows: Area of a Segment of a Circle Formula. Formula To Calculate Area of a Segment of a Circle. Area of a Segment in Radians. A = (½) × r 2 (θ – Sin θ) Area of a Segment in Degrees. A = (½) × r 2 × [ (π/180) θ – sin θ]

**Which is the correct name for the center of a circle?**

The fixed point is called the centre of the circle and the constant distance between any point on the circle and its centre is called the radius. A circle can have different parts and based on the position and shape, these can be named as follows: As we have already discussed the centre and radius of a circle.
