# Use a compass to draw a circle of radius 1 inch. Draw a chord, a line segment that joins two points on the circle. Draw other chords and measure their lengths. What is the largest possible length of a chord in this circle?

To determine

To compare:

The lengths of the two chords of a circle and to find the largest possible length of a chord in the circle of radius 1 in.

Explanation

Calculation:

Given,

Radius of the circle is 1 in.

Measure 1 in. of radius using the compass and ruler.

With â€˜Câ€™ as centre draw a circle of radius, CP=1 in.

Now, draw two chords RSÂ¯ and MNÂ¯ in the circle at two different places.
