1. If an arc 70mm long subtends an angle of pi over 4 radians at the centre what is the radius of the circle?

This problem is simple if you use the formula for finding the arc length given the angle and the radius. If an arc of length s on a circle of radius r subtends an angle , measured in radians, then:

...

Solution Summary
