Two examples of obtuse angle in our environment are:

(i) The smaller angle formed by the two adjacent blades of a fan.

(ii) The smaller angle formed by the two sloping sides of a roof of a but is an obtuse angle.

### Question: 2

Angle formed by two adjacent fingers will appear as an acute angle.

### Question: 3

Shikha is rowing a boat due northeast. In which direction will she be rowing if she turns it through:

(i) a straight angle. (ii) a complete angle.

### Solution:

(i) If Shikha turns through a straight angle or 180 degrees, she will be rowing along the south – west direction.

### (ii) If Shikha turns through a complete angle or 360 degrees, she will be rowing along her original direction, i.e., north – east direction. ### Question: 4

What is the measure of the angle in degrees between:

(i) North and West?

(ii) North and South? (iii) North and South – East?

### Solution:

The measure of the angle between:

### Question: 5

A ship sailing in river Jhelam moves towards east. If it changes to north, through what angle does it turn?

### Solution:

If the ship is sailing in east direction and turns to north direction, it turns through an angle of 90 degrees.

### Question: 6

You are standing in a class room facing north. In what direction are you facing after making a quarter turn?

### Solution:

After making a quarter turn or a turn of 90 degrees, i will be facing east if i turn to my right hand. Similarly, if i turn to my left hand, i will be facing west.

### Question: 7

A bicycle wheel makes four and a half turns. Find the number of right angles through which it turns.

### Solution:

In one turn, the wheel of a bicycle covers 360°.

If we express 360° in right angles, we get:

360°/90° = 4 right angles.

Thus, in four and a half turns, the wheel will turn by (4 × 4.5) = 18 right angles.

### Question: 8

Look at your watch face. Through how many right angles does the minute hand moves between 8 O’ clock and 10:30 O’ clock?

### Solution:

The time interval between 8: 00 O’clock and 10 : 30 O’clock is 2.5 hours, i.e., two and a half hours.

In 1 hour, the minute hand turns by a complete angle, i.e., 360° or 360°/90° = 4 right angles.

Thus, in 2.5 hours, the minute hand will turn by 2.5 × 4 = 10 right angles.

### Question: 9

If a bicycle wheel has 48 spokes, then find the angle between a pair of adjacent spokes.

### Solution:

In a bicycle, the central angle measures 360° and it consists of 48 spokes.

Therefore, angle between any two adjacent spokes = 360/48 = 7.5°.
