Q. 9

# Prove that a diameter is the largest chord in a circle.

Answer :

We know that,

A chord nearer to the center is longer than the chord which is far from the center

∴ Diameter is the longest chord in the circle (because it passes through the center and other chords are far from the center)

Rate this question :

PQ and RQ are the chords of a circle equidistant from the centre. Prove that the diameter passing through Q bisects ∠PQR and ∠PSR.

Prove that the diameter of a circle perpendicular to one of the two parallel chords of a circle is perpendicular to the other and bisects it.

RS Aggarwal & V Aggarwal - Mathematics

In a circle of radius 17 cm, two parallel chords are drawn on opposite side of a diameter. The distance between the chords is 23 cm. If the length of one chord is 16 cm, then the length of the other is

RD Sharma - MathematicsTwo equal circles of radius *r* intersect such that each passes through the centre of the other. The length of the common chord of the circles is
