An arc can be measured either in degree or in unit length. An arc is a portion of the circumference of the circle which is determined by the size of its corresponding central angle. We create a proportion that compares the arc to the whole circle first in degree measure and then in unit length. (measure of central angle/360 degrees) = (arc length/circumference) arc length = (measure of central angle/360 degrees)(circumference) But, maybe the angle that determines the arc in your problem is not a central angle. In such a case, find the arc measure in degree, and then write the proportion to find the arc length.

Assuming the measure of the arc refers to the angle at the centre of the circle, the answer is 180 - 150 = 30 degrees.

A central angle is measured by its intercepted arc. Let's denote the length of the intercepted arc with s, and the length of the radius r. So, s = 6 cm and r = 30 cm. When a central angle intercepts an arc whose length measure equals the length measure of the radius of the circle, this central angle has a measure 1 radian. To find the angle in our problem we use the following relationship: measure of an angle in radians = (length of the intercepted arc)/(length of the radius) measure of our angle = s/r = 6/30 = 1/5 radians. Now, we need to convert this measure angle in radians to degrees. Since pi radians = 180 degrees, then 1 radians = 180/pi degrees, so: 1/5 radians = (1/5)(180/pi) degrees = 36/pi degrees, or approximate to 11.5 degrees.

Yes. Besides the included angle, arc length is also dependant on the radius. Arc length = (Pi/180) x radius x included angle in degrees.
