Q. 24.4( 25 Votes )

Two concentric circles of radii 5 cm and 3 cm are drawn. Find the length of the chord of the larger circle which touches the smaller circle.

Answer :


AB = AF = 5cm radius of larger circle


AD = AC = 3cm radius of smaller circle


Pythagoras theorem


AF2 = AD2 + DF2


52 = 32 + DF2


252 = 92 + DF2


DF = 4 units


Length of chord = 2 × DF = 2 × 4 = 8cm
