you have a triangle formed by the radius on 2 and the chord on the other. the angle in that triangle that is opposite the chord, find its measure in radians take that measure (in radians) and multiply it by the radius to get the arc length

Assume you mean the chord of a circle? If the angle between the two radii from the ends of the chord is A, and the radius of the circle is R, the chord length L will be L = 2RsinA/2. You can prove this easily by joining the point bisecting the chord to the centre, you then have two rightangled triangles, with an included angle of A/2, and an opposite side of L/2. So sinA/2 = L/2R.

No. A chord is a straight line drawn between any two points on the circumference of a circle. The longest chord is when the points are on opposite sides of the centre of the circle (and passes through the centre of the circle). The straight line which joins the points on opposite sides of the centre (through the centre) is called the diameter of the circle. Therefore the longest chord possible is the diameter of the circle. A circle with a diameter of 15 in can have a chord with a maximum length of 15 in.

The longest chord of a circle is its diameter

the chord is 4in long

The longest chord possible in a circle is one that is from one point on the circumference to its opposite point i.e. a chord that bisects the circle. Or to put it simply one straight down the middle

Name a chord congruent to chord ZT.

It is the C6 chord.

Generally, a minor chord has a darker sound.

If radius of a circle intersects a chord then it bisects the chord only if radius is perpendicular to the chord.

The homonym for chord is cord.

The radius of the circle that is perpendicular to a chord intersects the chord at its midpoint, so it is said to bisect the chord.

There are two main triad types (chords) that contain a perfect fifth between the root and the fifth: the major chord and the minor chord. The major chord is created by starting with a note (the root), adding a major third on top of that, and adding a minor third on top of that note. A C major chord would look like this: C, E, G (with the E and the G stacked on top of the C). The minor chord is created by starting with a note (again, the root), adding a minor third, and then adding a major third--just the opposite of a major chord. A C minor chord would look like this: C, Eb (E-flat), G.
