The length s of the arc intercepted on a circle of radius r by a central angle of measure θ radians is given by the product of the radius and the radian measure of the angle, or s = rθ, θ in radians. http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Rev.S08 Click link to download other modules. 11 Example of Finding Arc Length of a Circle A circle has radius 18.2 cm.

A sector of a circle is a portion of the interior of a circle intercepted by a central angle. “A piece of pie.” The area of a sector of a circle of radius r and central angle θ is given by http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Rev.S08 Click link to download other modules. 18 6

A unit circle has its center at the origin and a radius of 1 unit.Note: r = 1 s = rθ, s=θ in radians. http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Rev.S08 Click link to download other modules. 20 Circular Functions Note that s is the arc length measured in linear units such as inches or centimeters, is numerically equal to the angle θ measured in radians, because r = 1 in the unit circle. http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Rev.S08 Click link to download other modules. 21 7

Circular function values of real numbers are obtained in the same manner as trigonometric function values of angles measured in radians. This applies both to methods of finding exact values (such as reference angle analysis) and to calculator approximations. Calculators must be in radian mode when finding circular function values. http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Rev.S08 Click link to download other modules. 24 8
9. Example of Finding Exact Circular Function Values Find the exact values of Evaluating a circular function at the real number is equivalent to evaluating it at radians. An angle of intersects the unit circle at the point . Since sin s = y, cos s = x, and http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Rev.S08 Click link to download other modules. 25 Example of Approximating Circular Function Values Find a calculator approximation to four decimal places for each circular function. (Make sure the calculator is in radian mode.) a) cos 2.01 ≈ −.4252 b) cos .6207 ≈ .8135 For the cotangent, secant, and cosecant functions values, we must use the appropriate reciprocal functions. c) cot 1.2071 http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Rev.S08 Click link to download other modules. 26 What have we learned?
