Find the degree measure of the angle subtended at the centre of a circle of radius 100 cm by an arc of length 22 cm (Use π = 22/7).

Answer :

Given: l = 22 cm (length of arc) and r = 100 cm (radius of circle)



We know that θ = (here, θ is angle subtended by arc)


θ = = 0.22 radians


We know that,


0.22 radian = 0.22 × = 0.22 ×

0.22 radian = (12.6)°

Also we know that, 1° = 60'

So 0.6° = 0.6 × 60 = 36'

Hence, 12°36'


Angle subtended by arc of length 22 cm at the centre of the circle of radius 100 cm is 12°36’.
