## anonymous 4 years ago What is a central angle and what is the relationship of the measures of the central angle and the intercepted arc?

1. anonymous

oh maybe theta=l/r where l is length of arc

|dw:1335854430874:dw| The angle subtended by an arc at the center of a circle is the Central Angle.

$\text{Here L is the arc length}$ $\text{Here r is the radius of the circle}$ $\text{Here}\ \theta\ \text{is the central angle}$ $\text{Relation between central angle and arc length:}$ $\Huge L=r \times \theta$

@Abbie23 Do you understand this?
