A chord of length 6 cm is drawn in a circle of radius 5 cm. Calculate its distance from the centre of the circle.
A chord of length 8 cm is drawn at a distance of 3 cm from the centre of a circle. Calculate the radius of the circle.
The figure given below, shows a circle with centre O in which diameter AB bisects the chord CD at point E. If CE = ED = 8 cm and EB = 4cm, find the radius of the circle.
In a circle of radius 17 cm, two parallel chords of lengths 30 cm and 16 cm are drawn. Find the distance between the chords, if both the chords are
(i) on the opposite sides of the centre,
(ii) on the same side of the centre.
In the given figure, AC is a diameter of circle, centre O. Chord BD is perpendicular to AC. Write down the angles p, q and r in terms of x .
In Fig. O is the centre of the circle with radius 5 cm. OP⊥ AB, OQ ⊥ CD, AB || CD, AB = 8 cm and CD = 6 cm. Determine PQ.
AB and CD are two parallel chords of a circle such that AB = 10 cm and CD = 24 cm. If the chords are on the opposite sides of the centre and the distance between them is 17 cm, find the radius of the circle.
