GATE | GATE CS 2018 | Question 5
What is the area of the circle which has the diagonal of the square as its diameter if the area of square is ‘ d ‘ ?
One important observation to solve
the question :
Diagonal of Square = Diameter of Circle.
Let side of square be x.
From Pythagoras theorem.
Diagonal = √(2*x*x)
We know area of square = x * x = d
Diameter = Diagonal = √(2*d)
Radius = √(d/2)
Area of circle = π * √(d/2) * √(d/2) = 1/2 * π * d
