1. Find the values of the unknown letters.

Theorem 9 Two tangents drawn to a circle from the same point outside the circle are equal in length.

Proof :

Consider a circle, with centre $O$ . Choose a point $P$ outside the circle. Draw two tangents to the circle from point $P$ , that meet the circle at $A$ and $B$ . Draw lines $OA$ , $OB$ and $OP$ . The aim is to prove that $AP=BP$ . In $▵OAP$ and $▵OBP$ ,

1. $OA=OB$ (radii)
2. $\angle OAP=\angle OPB={90}^{\circ }$ ( $OA\perp AP$ and $OB\perp BP$ )
3. $OP$ is common to both triangles.

$▵OAP\equiv ▵OBP$ (right angle, hypotenuse, side) $\therefore AP=BP$

Theorem 10 The angle between a tangent and a chord, drawn at the point of contact of the chord, is equal to the angle which the chord subtends in the alternate segment.

Proof :

Consider a circle, with centre $O$ . Draw a chord $AB$ and a tangent $SR$ to the circle at point $B$ . Chord $AB$ subtends angles at points $P$ and $Q$ on the minor and major arcs, respectively. Draw a diameter $BT$ and join $A$ to $T$ . The aim is to prove that $\stackrel{^}{APB}=\stackrel{^}{ABR}$ and $\stackrel{^}{AQB}=\stackrel{^}{ABS}$ . First prove that $\stackrel{^}{AQB}=\stackrel{^}{ABS}$ as this result is needed to prove that $\stackrel{^}{APB}=\stackrel{^}{ABR}$ .

$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill \stackrel{^}{ABS}+\stackrel{^}{ABT}& =& {90}^{\circ }\left(\mathrm{TB}\perp \mathrm{SR}\right)\hfill \\ \hfill \stackrel{^}{BAT}& =& {90}^{\circ }\left(\angle \phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\mathrm{\text{'}s at centre}\right)\hfill \\ \hfill \therefore \stackrel{^}{ABT}+\stackrel{^}{ATB}& =& {90}^{\circ }\phantom{\rule{3pt}{0ex}}\left(\mathrm{sum of angles in}\phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}▵\mathrm{BAT}\right)\hfill \\ \hfill \therefore \stackrel{^}{ABS}& =& \stackrel{^}{ABT}\hfill \\ \hfill \mathrm{However,}\phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\stackrel{^}{\mathrm{AQB}}& =& \stackrel{^}{ATB}\phantom{\rule{3pt}{0ex}}\left(\mathrm{angles subtended by same chord}\phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\mathrm{AB}\right)\hfill \\ \hfill \therefore \stackrel{^}{AQB}& =& \stackrel{^}{ABS}\hfill \\ \hfill \\ \hfill \stackrel{^}{SBQ}+\stackrel{^}{QBR}& =& {180}^{\circ }\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}\left(\mathrm{SBT}\phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\mathrm{is a str. line}\right)\hfill \\ \hfill \stackrel{^}{APB}+\stackrel{^}{AQB}& =& {180}^{\circ }\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}\left(\mathrm{ABPQ}\phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\mathrm{is a cyclic quad}\right)\hfill \\ \hfill \therefore \stackrel{^}{SBQ}+\stackrel{^}{QBR}& =& \stackrel{^}{APB}+\stackrel{^}{AQB}\hfill \\ \hfill \stackrel{^}{\mathrm{AQB}}& =& \stackrel{^}{ABS}\hfill \\ \hfill \therefore \stackrel{^}{APB}& =& \stackrel{^}{ABR}\hfill \end{array}$

Theorem 11 (Converse of [link] ) If the angle formed between a line, that is drawn through the end point of a chord, and the chord, is equal to the angle subtended by the chord in the alternate segment, then the line is a tangent to the circle.

Proof :

Consider a circle, with centre $O$ and chord $AB$ . Let line $SR$ pass through point $B$ . Chord $AB$ subtends an angle at point $Q$ such that $\stackrel{^}{ABS}=\stackrel{^}{AQB}$ . The aim is to prove that $SBR$ is a tangent to the circle. By contradiction. Assume that $SBR$ is not a tangent to the circle and draw $XBY$ such that $XBY$ is a tangent to the circle.

$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill \stackrel{^}{ABX}& =& \stackrel{^}{AQB}\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}\left(\mathrm{tan}-\mathrm{chord theorem}\right)\hfill \\ \hfill \mathrm{However},\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}\stackrel{^}{\mathrm{ABS}}& =& \stackrel{^}{AQB}\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}\left(\mathrm{given}\right)\hfill \\ \hfill \therefore \stackrel{^}{ABX}& =& \stackrel{^}{ABS}\hfill \\ \hfill \mathrm{But},\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}\stackrel{^}{\mathrm{ABX}}& =& \stackrel{^}{ABS}+\stackrel{^}{XBS}\hfill \\ \hfill \mathrm{can only be true if},\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}\stackrel{^}{\mathrm{XBS}}& =& 0\hfill \end{array}$

If $\stackrel{^}{XBS}$ is zero, then both $XBY$ and $SBR$ coincide and $SBR$ is a tangent to the circle.

1. Show that Theorem [link] also applies to the following two cases:

$BD$ is a tangent to the circle with centre $O$ . $BO\perp AD$ . Prove that:
1. $CFOE$ is a cyclic quadrilateral
2. $FB=BC$

• $\stackrel{^}{COE}=\stackrel{^}{CBF}$
• $\stackrel{^}{ECO}=\stackrel{^}{FCB}$
• $\stackrel{^}{OEC}=\stackrel{^}{CFB}$
$\begin{array}{ccc}& \therefore & ▵COE|||▵CBF\phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\left(3\phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\angle \phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\mathrm{\text{'}s equal}\right)\hfill \end{array}$

3. Lastly, $\stackrel{^}{ADC}=\stackrel{^}{EDC}$ since they are the same $\angle$ .

4. $\begin{array}{ccc}& \therefore & ▵ADC|||▵CDE\phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\left(3\phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\angle \phantom{\rule{2pt}{0ex}}\mathrm{\text{'}s equal}\right)\hfill \\ & \therefore & \frac{ED}{CD}=\frac{CD}{AD}\hfill \\ & \therefore & C{D}^{2}=ED.AD\hfill \end{array}$

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.

carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
