A circle touching x-axis at (3,0) can be represented by
(3-h)^2 + ( 0 – k )^2 = r^2
radius is twice the radius of the circle x^2+y^2-2x-2y-2=0
Hence find radius of new circle.
 
Radius is (1+1+2)^1/2
  • 2.
Hence the radius of given circle is 4.
 
  • (3-h)^2 + ( 0 – k )^2 = 4^2
Since no other condition is given to find the center of the circle.The equation of circle is
  • (x-h)^2 + ( y – k )^2 = 16  ------------1
Length of its chord intercepted on y-axis is given by (k^2 – c)^ 1/2 where equation of circle is in the form
x^2 + y^2 + 2hx + 2ky + c = 0 ----------------2
Comparing equations 1 and 2
Hence length of chord is (1- (r^2) ^ ½.
