1 9 Tangents and Secants to a ircle 9.1 INTRDUTIN We have seen two lines mostly intersect at a point or do not intersect in a plane. In some situations they coincide with each other. Similarly, what happens when a curve and a line is given in a plane? You know a curve may be a parabola as you have seen in polynomials or a simple closed curve circle which is a collection of all those points on a plane that are at a constant distance from a fixed point. Y X You might have seen circular objects rolling on a plane creating a path. For example; riding a bicycle, wheels of train on the track etc., where it seems to be a circle and a line. Does there a relation exist between them? Let us see what happens, if a circle and a line are given in a plane LINE ND IRLE You are given a circle and a line drawn on a paper. Salman argues that there can only be 3 possible ways of presenting them. onsider a circle and a line, the three possibilities are given in figure below: (i) (ii) (iii)

2 6 lass-x Mathematics In Fig.(i), the line and the circle have no common point. In this case is a nonintersecting line with respect to the circle. In Fig.(ii), the line intersects the circle at two points and. It forms a chord on the circle with two common points. In this case the line is a secant of the circle. In Fig.(iii), There is only one point, common to the line and the circle. This line is called a tangent to the circle. You can see that there cannot be any other position of the line with respect to the circle. We will study the existence of tangents to a circle and also study their properties and constructions. Do yo know? The word tangent comes from the latin word tangere, which means to touch and was introduced by Danish mathematician Thomas Fineke in D THIS i. Draw a circle with any radius. Draw four tangents at different points. How many tangents can you draw to this circle? L M ii. How many tangents you can draw to circle from a point away from it. iii. Which of the following are tangents to the circles 9. TNGENTS F IRLE We can see that tangent can be drawn at any point lying on the circle. an you say how many tangents can be drawn at any point on the surface of the circle. To understand this let us consider the following activity. TIVITY Take a circular wire and attach a straight wire at a point of the circular wire, so that the system rotate about the point in a plane. The circular wire represents a circle and 1 11 the straight wire represents a line intersects the circle at point. ut the system on a table and gently rotate the wire about the point to get different positions of the straight wire as shown in the figure. The wire intersects the circular wire at and at one more point through the points 1, or 3 etc. So while it generally intersects circular wire at two points one of which is 11 1 in one particular position, it intersects the circle only at the Free Distribution by..

3 Tangents and Secants to a ircle 7 point (See position of ). This is the position of a tangent at the point of the circle. You can check that in all other positions of it will intersect the circle at and at another point, is a tangent to the circle at. We see that there is only one tangent to the circle at point. Moving wire in either direction from this position makes it cut the circular wire in two points. ll these are therefore secants. Tangent is a special case of a secant where the two points of intersection of a line with a circle coincide. D THIS Draw a circle and a secant of the circle on a paper as shown below. Draw various lines parallel to the secant on both sides of it. What happens to the length of chord coming closer and closer to the centre of the circle? What is the longest chord? How many tangents can you draw to a circle, which are parallel to each other? The common point of the tangent and the circle is called the point of contact and the tangent is said to touch the circle at the common point. bserve the tangents to the circle in the figures given below: How many tangents can you draw to a circle at a point? How many tangents can you obtain to the circle in all? See the points of contact. Draw radii from the points of contact. Do you see anything special about the angle between the tangents and the radii at the points of contact. ll appear to be perpendicular to the corresponding tangents. We can also prove it. Let us see how. Theorem-9.1 : The tangent at any point of a circle is perpendicular to the radius through the point of contact. Given : circle with centre and a tangent XY to the circle at a point. To prove : is perpendicular to XY. (i.e XY) roof : Here, we will use the method that assumes that the Free Distribution by.. Government Y

4 8 lass-x Mathematics statement is wrong and shows that such an assumption leads to a fallacy. So we will suppose is not perpendicular to XY. Take a point on XY other than and join. The point must lie outside the circle (why?) (Note that if lies inside the circle, XY becomes a secant and not a tangent to the circle) Therefore, is longer than the radius of the circle [Why?] i.e., >. Y This must happen for all points on the line XY. It is therefore true that is the shortest of all the distances of the point to the points of XY. So our assumption that is not perpendicular to XY is false. Therefore, is perpendicular to XY. Hence proved. Note : The line containing the radius through the point of contact is also called the normal to the circle at the point. TRY THIS How can you prove the converse of the above theorem. If a line in the plane of a circle is perpendicular to the radius at its endpoint on the circle, then the line is tangent to the circle. We can find some more results using the above theorem (i) Since there can be only one perpendicular at the point, it follows that one and only one tangent can be drawn to a circle at a given point on the circumference. (ii) Since there can be only one perpendicular to XY at the point, it follows that the perpendicular to a tangent at its point of contact passes through the centre. Think about these. Discuss these among your friends and with your teachers NSTRUTIN F TNGENT T IRLE How can we construct a line that would be tangent to a circle at a given point on it? We use what we just found the tangent has to be perpendicular to the radius at the point of contact. To draw a tangent through the point of contact we need to draw a line prependicular to the radius at that point. To draw this radius we need to know the center of the circle. Let us see the steps for this construction. Free Distribution by.. Government

TIVITY (i) Draw a circle on a paper. Take a point inside it. an you draw a tangent to the circle through this point? You will find that all the lines through this point intersect the circle in two points. What are these? These are all secants of a circle. So, it is not possible to draw any tangent to a circle through a point inside it. (See the adjacent figure) (ii) Next, take a point on the circle and draw tangents through this point.

We shall now see how to draw these tangents. onstruction : To construct the tangents to a circle from a point outside it. Given : We are given a circle with centre and a point outside it. We have to construct two tangents from to the circle. Steps of construction : Step(i) : Join and draw a perpendicular bisector of it. Let M be the midpoint of.

Since, is a radius of the given circle, has to be a tangent to the circle (y converse theorem of 9.1) Similarly, is also a tangent to the circle. Hence proved. Some interesting statements about tangents and secants and their proof: Statement-1 : The centre of a circle lies on the bisector of the angle between two tangents drawn from a point outside it. an you think how we can prove it? roof : Let and R be two tangents drawn from a point outside of the circle with centre Join and R, triangles and R are congruent because we know that, M M M Free Distribution by..

Hence, the centre lies on the bisector of the angle between the two tangents. Statement- : In two concentric circles, such that a chord of the bigger circle, that touches the smaller circle is bisected at the point of contact with the smaller circle. an you see how is this? roof : We are given two concentric circles 1 and with centre and a chord of the larger circle 1, touching the smaller circle at the point (See figure) we need to prove that =. 1 Join.

11 Tangents and Secants to a ircle 35 Example-1. Draw a pair of tangents to a circle of radius 5cm which are inclined to each other at an angle 60. Solution : To draw the circle and the two tangents we need to see how we proceed. We only have the radius of the circle and the angle between the tangents. We do not know the distance of the point from where the tangents are drawn to the circle and we do not know the length of the tangents either. We know only the angle between the tangents. Using this, we need to find out the distance of the point outside the circle from which we have to draw the tangents. To begin let us consider a circle with centre and radius 5cm. Let and are two tangents draw from a point outside the circle and the angle between them is 60 o. In this = 60 o. Join. s we know, is the bisector of, 5 cm. o 60 = = =30o 60 ( ) 5 cm. Now ln, sin 30 o pp. side = = Hyp 1 (From trigonometric ratio) = 5 = 10 cm. Now we can draw a circle of radius 5 cm with centre.
