1. A railroad is to be laid-off in a circular path. What should be the radius if the track is to change direction
by 30 degrees at a distance of 157.08?
2. A reverse curve on a railroad track consist of two circular arcs. The central angle of one is 20 degrees
with radius 2500 feet and the central angle of the other is 25 degrees with radius of 3000 feet. Find the
total length of the two arcs.
3. A pig is tied to a corner of a 5m by 7m shed with an 8m rope. Find the ground area the pig can graze.
4. Assuming that the earth is a sphere whose radius is 6400km, find the distance along a 3-degree arc at the
earth’s surface.
5. You are given one coin with 5cm diameter and a large supply of coins with diameter of 2cm. what is the
maximum number of the smaller coins that may be arranged tangentially around the larger coin without
any overlap?
6. Three circles C1, C2, and C3 are externally tangent to each other. Center to center distances are 10cm
between C1 and C2, 8cm between C2 and C3 and 6cm between C3 and C1. Determine the total areas of
the circles.
7. What is the ratio of the area of a square inscribed in a circle to the area of the square circumscribing the
circle?
8. A swimming pool is to be constructed in the shape of partially overlapping identical circles. Each of the
circles has a radius of 9m and passes through the center of the other. Find the area of the swimming
pool.
9. In the figure shown, ABCD is a square and PDC is an equilateral triangle. Find θ.
10. Point P which is 10m distance from the vertices of a triangle with sides 4, 5, and 6. Find the distance
from point P to the plane of the triangle.
