Solution: Using s = 6 and r = 9 in formula (4.6) for the area A , we get A= 1 2 rs = = Note that the angle subtended by the arc is θ = 1 2 (9) (6) = 27 cm2 . s r = 2 3 rad. Example 4.11 Find the area K inside the belt pulley system from Example 4.7 in Section 4.2. Solution: Recall that the belt pulleys have radii of 5 cm and 8 cm, and their centers are 15 cm apart. We showed in Example 4.7 that EF = AC = 6 6, ∠ D AE = 1.37 rad, and ∠ GBF = 1.77 rad. We see from Figure 4.3.2 that, by symmetry, the total area K enclosed by the belt is twice the area above the line DG , that is, K = 2 ((Area of sector D AE ) + (Area of rectangle AEFC ) + (Area of triangle △ ABC ) + (Area of sector GBF )) .

And since △ ABC is a right triangle whose legs have lengths 3 and 6 6, its area is 1 (3) (6 6) = 9 6. Thus, using formula (4.5) 2 for the areas of sectors D AE and GBF , we have K = 2 (Area of sector D AE ) + 30 6 + 9 6 + (Area of sector GBF ) =2 1 2 (5)2 (1.37) + 30 6 + 9 6 + = 338.59 cm2 . 1 2 (8)2 (1.77) ...
