Area of circle

## As performed in real lab:

### Materials required:

Coloured paper, compass, scale, a pair of scissors, gum, colours

### Procedure:

• Draw a circle of radius r = 4 cm (say) on the paper.
• Divide the circle into 16 equal parts. [Fig (a)]
• Cut all the 16 parts and arrange them to get the [Fig (b)].
• Take any part from any side and further divide it into 2 parts. [Fig (c)]
• To complete the shape of rectangle arrange these two smaller parts at the corners of the shape obtained in [Fig (b)].
• Find the length and the breadth of the rectangle so formed [Fig (d)].
• Find the area of the rectangle.  Fig (a)                                                                            Fig (b)  Fig (c)                                                                             Fig (d)

## As performed in Simulator:

• Click on scale (between 2 and 3) in workbench to draw circle.
• Click on the circle to mark 16 sectorials parts & color them differently.
• Move mouse over each wedge to align them in a row.
• Click on next button below to color wedges & divide in two group.
• Click blue group to rotate and align.
• Drag the blue group and drop over green group to join and form parallelogram.
• Click on left most wedge to cut it into two parts.
• Drag the red part and attach to the right end so as to form a rectangle.
• This is a rectangle whose area can be calculated as (Length x Breadth).

## Observations:

• The students will observe that the area of rectangle
• The students will observe that the rectangle is obtained from parts of circle. Hence area of circle =
