4/5/98
A perpendicular line drawn to a chord from the centre of a circle
bisects the chord, and the perpendicular bisector of a chord passes
through the centre.\ue000 AD = DB
(OD bisects AB)

Proof:
\ue001ADO = \ue001BDO = 90\ue002(Given)
OA = OB
OD is common
(RHS)
(Corresponding sides in congruent\ue003\u2019s)
So, OD bisects AB

The line from the centre of a circle to the midpoint of a chord
meets the chord at right angles.
(OD\ue005 AB)

Proof:
\ue001ADO = \ue001BDO = 90\ue002(Given)
OA = OB
OD is common
(RHS)
(Corresponding sides in congruent\ue003\u2019s)
So, OD bisects AB
Equal chords of a circle are the same distance from the centre and
subtend equal angles at the centre.
\ue001AOB = \ue001COD
EO = FO
(Chords equal when equidistant from the centre)
Proof:
Let, CD = AB
\ue001OEB = \ue001OFD = 90\ue002
(Given)
OB = OD
AB = CD
(Given)
BE = \u00bd.AB
(OE bisects AB)
DF = \u00bd.CD
(OF bisects CD)
\ue000 BE = DF
\ue000\ue003OEB \ue004\ue003OFD
(RHS)
\ue000OE = OF
(Corresponding sides in congruent\ue003\u2019s)

The angle subtended by an arc (or chord) at the centre of a circle
is double the angle subtended by the arc (or chord) at the
circumference.\ue001BOC = 2\ue006\ue001BAC
(\ue001 at centre is twice the\ue001 at the circumference)

Proof:
Join AO and produce to D
Let, \ue001BAO = x and \ue001CAO = y
\ue000\ue001BAC = x + y
OA = OB
\ue000\ue001OBA = x
(Base\ue001\u2019s of isosceles\ue003)
=\ue001BAO
OA = OC
\ue000\ue001OCA = y
(Base\ue001\u2019s of isosceles\ue003)
=\ue001CAO
\ue001BOD = x + x
(External\ue001 of\ue003OBA)
= 2.x
\ue001COD = y + y
(External\ue001 of\ue003OBA)
= 2.y
\ue001BOC = \ue001BOD + \ue001COD
= 2.x + 2.y
= 2(x + y)
= 2.\ue001BAC

Angles subtended at the circumference by the same or equal arcs
(or chords) are equal.\ue001ABD =\ue001ACD
(\ue001 in the same segment)

Proof:
Join A and D to centre O
\ue001AOD = 2.\ue001ABD
(\ue001 at centre is twice the\ue001 at the
\ue001.AOD = 2.\ue001ACD
circumference)
\ue000 \ue001ABD = \ue001ACD

Any angle (to the circumference of a circle) in a semi-circle is a
right angle. ACB = 90\u00b0
(\ue001 at centre is twice the\ue001 at the circumference)

Proof:
\ue001AOB = 180\ue002
(Straight\ue001 )
\ue001AOB = 2.\ue001ACB
(\ue001 at centre is twice the\ue001 at the
circumference)
\ue000\ue001ACB = 90\ue002
