Problem 1 :

Find the length of the arc that is bolded. (Take ∏    3.14 and round your answer to one decimal place, if necessary) Solution :

The formula to find the arc length is

=  (Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 2Π r

Plug r  =  8, Arc Measure  =  135° and Π    3.14

(135° / 360°⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  8

18.9

Hence, the length of the arc is about 18.9 yd.

Let us look at the next problem on "Arc length worksheet".

Problem 2 :

The formula to find the arc length is

=  (Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 2Π r

Plug r  =  8, Arc Measure  =  315° and Π    3.14

(315° / 360°⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  8

44

Hence, the length of the arc is about 44 cm.

Let us look at the next problem on "Arc length worksheet".

Problem 3 :

Find the length of the arc highlighted in red color. (Take ∏    3.14 and round your answer to one decimal place, if necessary) Solution :

Given : Diameter is 4 inches.

=  Diameter / 2

=  4 / 2

=  2 inches

The formula to find the arc length is

=  (Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 2Π r

Plug r  =  2, Arc Measure  =  80° and Π    3.14

(80° / 360°⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  2

2.8

Hence, the length of the arc is about 2.8 inches.

Let us look at the next problem on "Arc length worksheet".

Problem 4 :

In the diagram given below, if QRS is a central angle and m∠QRS = 81°, m∠SRT = 115°, and radius is 5 cm, then find the length of the arc QST. (Take ∏    3.14 and round your answer to one decimal place, if necessary) Solution :

To find the length of the arc QST, first we have to find the arc measure QST or the central angle m∠QRT.

m∠QRT  =  m∠QRS + m∠SRT

m∠QRT  =  81° + 115°

m∠QRT  =  196°

The formula to find the arc length is

=  (Central Angle / 360°⋅ 2Π r

Plug r  =  5, Central Angle  =  196° and Π    3.14

(196° / 360°⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  5

17.1

Hence, the length of the arc is about 17.1 cm.

Let us look at the next problem on "Arc length worksheet".

Problem 5 :

If m∠LMN = 19° and radius is 15 inches, then find the length of arc LN. (Take ∏    3.14 and round your answer to one decimal place, if necessary) Solution :

To find the length of the arc LN, first we have to find the arc measure LN

By Inscribed Angle Theorem, we have

1/2 ⋅ Arc Measure  =  m∠LMN

Multiply both sides by 2.

Arc Measure  =  ⋅ m∠LMN

Arc Measure  =  ⋅ 19°

Arc Measure  =  38°

The formula to find the arc length is

=  (Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 2Π r

Plug r  =  15, Arc Measure  =  38° and Π    3.14

(38° / 360°⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  15

9.9

Hence, the length of the arc is about 9.9 inches.

Let us look at the next problem on "Arc length worksheet".

Problem 6 :

In a circle, if the arc length of Arc AB is 18 cm and the measure of Arc AB is 39°, then find the radius of the circle. (Take ∏    3.14 and round your answer to one decimal place, if necessary)

Solution :

Given : The arc length of Arc AB is 18 cm.

So, we have

(Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 2Π r  =  18

Plug Arc Measure  =  39° and Π    3.14

(39° / 360°⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  r  ≈  18

(39° / 360°⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  r  ≈  18

0.1083 ⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  r  ≈  18

0.68  r  ≈  18

Divide both sides by 0.68.

r  ≈  18 / 0.68

r  ≈  26.5

Let us look at the next problem on "Arc length worksheet".

Problem 7 :

In a circle, if the arc length of Arc AB is 19 inches and the radius is 29 inches, then find the measure of arc AB(Take ∏    3.14 and round your answer to one decimal place, if necessary)

Solution :

Given : The arc length of Arc AB is 19 inches.

So, we have

(Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 2Π r  =  19

Plug r  =  29 and Π    3.14

(Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  29  ≈  19

(Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 182.12  ≈  19

(Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 182.12  ≈  19

Multiply both sides by 360° / 182.12

Arc Measure  ≈  19 ⋅ 360° / 182.12

Arc Measure  ≈  19 ⋅ 360° / 182.12

Arc Measure  ≈  37.6°

Hence, the measure of arc AB is about 37.6°.

Let us look at the next problem on "Arc length worksheet".

Problem 8 :

Find the length of the arc highlighted in red color. (Take ∏    3.14 and round your answer to one decimal place, if necessary) Solution :

From the given diagram, we have

m∠MCN + Measure of arc MON  =  360°

Plug m∠MCN  =  88°

88° + Measure of arc MON  =  360°

Subtract 88° from both sides.

Measure of arc MON  =  272°

Given : Diameter is 4 inches.

=  Diameter / 2

=  10 / 2

=  5 ft

The formula to find the arc length is

=  (Arc Measure / 360°⋅ 2Π r

Plug r  =  5, Arc Measure  =  272° and Π    3.14

(272° / 360°⋅ 2 ⋅ 3.14  5

23.7 ft

Hence, the length of the arc is about 23.7 ft. After having gone through the stuff given above, we hope that the students would have understood how to find arc length.
