Theorems of the circle

Q-1 Prove that the line of centres of two intersecting circles subtends equal angles at the two points of intersection.

Solution:

Given

- Two circles with centres P and R, which intersect each other at Q and S

Construction

- Join PQ, PS, SR, QR.

In and

- (radius of the same circle)
- (radius of the same circle)
- (common line)
- Therefore by Side-Side-Side criterion of congruence,

Therefore, (corresponding parts of congruent triangles)

Q-2 Two chords PQ and ₹ of lengths 5cm and 11cm respectively of a circle are parallel to each and are on opposite sides of its centre. If the distance between PQ and ₹ is 6cm, find the radius of the circle

Solution:

Given,

- O is the centre of the circle
- And its radius be r cm
- and

Construction,

- Join OP and OR
- Since both P and R are on the circle and O is the center,

and and , Therefore, B, O, A are collinear.

Let , since . Therefore,

Since, the perpendicular from the centre to a chord of the circle bisects the chord, therefore,

- ()
- ()

In right

- … equation (1)

In right

- … equation (2)

From equation (1) and (2)

Now, putting in equation (1)

So, the radius of the circle is .
