Instructors Solutions Manual, Section 5.2 Exercise 17

17. Suppose an ant walks counterclockwise on the unit circle from thepoint (0,1) to the endpoint of the radius that forms an angle of 54radians with the positive horizontal axis. How far has the ant walked?

solution The radius whose endpoint equals (0,1) makes an angle of2 radians with the positive horizontal axis. This radius corresponds tothe smaller angle shown below.

Because 54 = + 4 , the radius that forms an angle of 54 radians withthe positive horizontal axis lies 4 radians beyond the negativehorizontal axis (half-way between the negative horizontal axis and thenegative vertical axis). Thus the ant ends its walk at the endpoint of theradius corresponding to the larger angle shown below:

1

The ant walks along the thickened circular arc shown above. Thiscircular arc corresponds to an angle of 54 2 radians, which equals 34radians. Thus the distance walked by the ant is 34 .

18. Suppose an ant walks counterclockwise on the unit circle from thepoint (1,0) to the endpoint of the radius that forms an angle of 6radians with the positive horizontal axis. How far has the ant walked?

solution The radius whose endpoint equals (1,0) makes an angleof radians with the positive horizontal axis. This radius lies on thenegative horizontal axis.

Because 2 6.28, the radius that forms an angle of 6 radians with thepositive horizontal axis lies slightly below the positive horizontal axis,as shown below:

1

The ant walks along the thickened circular arc shown above. Thiscircular arc corresponds to an angle of 6 radians. Thus the distancewalked by the ant is 6 .

Instructors Solutions Manual, Section 5.2 Exercise 19

19. Find the lengths of both circular arcs of the unit circle connectingthe point (1,0) and the endpoint of the radius that makes an angle of 3radians with the positive horizontal axis.

solution Because 3 is a bit less than , the radius that makes anangle of 3 radians with the positive horizontal axis lies a bit above thenegative horizontal axis, as shown below. The thickened circular arccorresponds to an angle of 3 radians and thus has length 3. The entireunit circle has length 2 . Thus the length of the other circular arc is2 3, which is approximately 3.28.

20. Find the lengths of both circular arcs of the unit circle connectingthe point (1,0) and the endpoint of the radius that makes an angle of 4radians with the positive horizontal axis.

solution The radius that makes an angle of 4 radians with thepositive horizontal axis is shown below. The thickened circular arccorresponds to an angle of 4 radians and thus has length 4. The entireunit circle has length 2 . Thus the length of the other circular arc is2 4, which is approximately 2.28.

21. Find the lengths of both circular arcs of the unit circle connectingthe point

(22 ,

2

2

)and the point whose radius makes an angle of 1

radian with the positive horizontal axis.

solution The radius of the unit circle whose endpoint equals(22 ,

2

)makes an angle of 4 radians with the positive horizontal

axis, as shown with the clockwise arrow below. The radius that makesan angle of 1 radian with the positive horizontal axis is shown with acounterclockwise arrow.

Thus the thickened circular arc above corresponds to an angle of 1+ 4and thus has length 1+ 4 , which is approximately 1.79. The entire unitcircle has length 2 . Thus the length of the other circular arc below is2 (1+ 4 ), which equals 74 1, which is approximately 4.50.

Instructors Solutions Manual, Section 5.2 Exercise 22

22. Find the lengths of both circular arcs of the unit circle connectingthe point

(22 , 22 ) and the point whose radius makes an angle of 2radians with the positive horizontal axis.

solution The radius of the unit circle whose endpoint equals(22 , 22 ) makes an angle of 34 radians with the positive horizontalaxis, as shown with the longer arrow below. The radius that makes anangle of 2 radian with the positive horizontal axis is shown with theshorter arrow below.

1

Thus the thickened circular arc above corresponds to an angle of 34 2and thus has length 34 2, which is approximately 0.356. The entireunit circle has length 2 . Thus the length of the other circular arcbelow is 2 (34 2), which equals 54 + 2, which is approximately5.927.
