Student Outcomes

- Students apply their understanding of arc length and area of sectors to solve problems of unknown area and length.

**Unknown Length and Area Problems**

Classwork

**Opening Exercise**

In the following figure, a cylinder is carved out from within another cylinder of the same height; the bases of both cylinders share the same center. a. Sketch a cross section of the figure parallel to the base. b. Mark and label the shorter of the two radii as π and the longer of the two radii as π . Show how to calculate the area of the shaded region, and explain the parts of the expression

**Exercises**

- Find the area of the following annulus.
- The larger circle of an annulus has a diameter of 10 cm, and the smaller circle has a diameter of 7.6 cm. What is the area of the annulus?
- In the following annulus, the radius of the larger circle is twice the radius of the smaller circle. If the area of the
following annulus is 12π units
^{2}, what is the radius of the larger circle? - An ice cream shop wants to design a super straw to serve with its extra thick milkshakes that is double both the
width and thickness of a standard straw. A standard straw is 4 mm in diameter and 0.5 mm thick.

a. What is the cross-sectional (parallel to the base) area of the new straw (round to the nearest hundredth)?

b. If the new straw is 10 cm long, what is the maximum volume of milkshake that can be in the straw at one time (round to the nearest hundredth)?

c. A large milkshake is 32 fl. oz. (approximately 950 mL). If Corbin withdraws the full capacity of a straw 10 times a minute, what is the minimum amount of time that it will take him to drink the milkshake (round to the nearest minute)? - In the circle given, πΈπ· is the diameter and is perpendicular to chord πΆπ΅. π·πΉ = 8 cm, and πΉπΈ = 2 cm. Find π΄πΆ, π΅πΆ, πβ πΆπ΄π΅, the arc length of πΆπΈπ΅, and the area of sector πΆπ΄π΅ (round to the nearest hundredth, if necessary).

- Many large cities are building or have built mega Ferris wheels. One is 600 feet in diameter and has 48 cars each
seating up to 20 people. Each time the Ferris wheel turns π degrees, a car is in a position to load.

a. How far does a car move with each rotation of π degrees (round to the nearest whole number)?

b. What is the value of π in degrees? - β³ π΄π΅πΆ is an equilateral triangle with edge length 20 cm. π·, πΈ, and πΉ are midpoints of the sides. The vertices of the
triangle are the centers of the circles creating the arcs shown. Find the following (round to the nearest hundredth).

a. Area of the sector with center π΄

b. Area of β³ π΄π΅πΆ

c. Area of the shaded region
