Question: circular railroad curves are designated by the degree of curvature...

Question details

Circular railroad curves are designated by the degree of​ curvature, the central angle subtended by a chord of 100 ft. Suppose a portion of track has a curvature of 50.0degrees. Find​ (a) the radius of the​ curve, (b) the length of the arc determined by the​ 100-ft chord, and​ (c) the area of the portion of the circle bounded by the arc and the​ 100-ft chord. ​

(a) The radius of the curve is 118 ft. ​(Round to the nearest integer as​ needed.) ​

(b) The length of the arc determined by the​ 100-ft chord is 103 ft. ​(Round to the nearest integer as​ needed.) ​

(c) The area bounded by the arc and the​ 100-ft chord is _____ ft squared. ​(Round to the nearest integer as​ needed.)
