Calculate and correct to three significant figures, the length of an arc subtends an angle of 70o at the center of the circle radius 4cm. [Take π = 22/7]
  • A.
    2.44cm
  • B.
    4.89cm
  • C.
    9.78cm
  • D.
    25.1cm
  • E.
    50.3cm
Correct Answer: Option B
Explanation

Circumference of circle = 2πr = 2 x 3.14 x 4
= 25.1cm 360o = 25.1cm

70o =

25.1/360

x 70 = 4.89
