### Access answers to Maths RD Sharma Solutions for Class 6 Chapter 11: Angles Exercise 11.2

**1. Give two examples each of right, acute and obtuse angles from your environment.**

**Solution:**

The two examples of right angle are:

Two adjacent walls of a room and adjacent edges of a book

The two examples of acute angle are:

Two adjacent sides of the letter Z and two adjacent fingers of our hand.

The two examples of obtuse angles are:

Two sloping sides of a roof and two adjacent blades of a fan.

**2. An angle is formed by two adjacent fingers. What kind of angle will it appear?**

**Solution:**

The angle formed by two adjacent fingers will appear as acute angle.

**3. Shikha is rowing a boat due north-east. In which direction will she be rowing if she turns it through: **

**(i) a straight angle **

**(ii) a complete angle.**

**Solution:**

(i) If she turns through a straight angle (180^{o}) she will be rowing in the South-West direction.

(ii) If she turns through a complete angle (360^{o}) she will be rowing in North-East direction.

**4. What is the measure of the angle in degrees between:**

**(i) North and West?**

**(ii) North and South?**

**(iii) North and South- East?**

**Solution:**

The measure of the angle in degrees between:

(i) North and West is 90^{o}.

(ii) North and South is 180^{o}.

(iii) North and South-East is 135^{o}.

**5. A ship sailing in river Jhelam moves towards east. If it changes to north, through what angle does it turn?**

**Solution:**

It the ship moves from east to north direction, the angle it turns is 90^{o}.

**6. You are standing in a class-room facing north. In what direction are you facing after making a quarter turn?**

**Solution:**

By making a quarter turn (90^{o}), I will be facing towards east if I turn to my right hand and if I turn to my left hand, I will be facing towards west.

**7. A bicycle wheel makes four and a half turns. Find the number of right angles through which it turns.**

**Solution:**

We know that the wheel of a bicycle covers 360^{o} in one turn.

It can be written as

360/90 = 4 right angles

We know that in four and half turns the wheel turns by 4 (4.5) = 18 right angles

Hence, the number of right angles through which it turns is 18.

**8. Look at your watch face. Through how many right angles does the minute-hand moves between 8: 00 Oâ€™ clock and 10: 30 Oâ€™ clock?**

**Solution:**

We know that the time interval between 8: 00 Oâ€™ clock and 10: 30 Oâ€™ clock is two and half hours

The minute hand turns 360^{o }in 1 hour

360/90 = 4 right angles

So in two and half hours the minute hand turns by 2.5 (4) = 10 right angles.

Hence, the minute hand turns by 10 right angles.

**9. If a bicycle wheel has 48 spokes, then find the angle between a pair of adjacent spokes.**

**Solution:**

The central angle in a bicycle is 360^{o} which consists of 48 spokes.

So the angle between a pair of adjacent spokes = 360/48 = 7.5^{o}

Hence, the angle between a pair of adjacent spokes is 7.5^{o}.

**10. Classify the following angles as acute, obtuse, straight, right, zero and complete angle:**

**(i) 118 ^{o}**

**(ii) 29 ^{o}**

**(iii) 145 ^{o}**

**(iv) 165 ^{o}**

**(v) 0 ^{o}**

**(vi) 75 ^{o}**

**(vii) 180 ^{o}**

**(viii) 89.5 ^{o}**

**(ix) 30 ^{o}**

**(x) 90 ^{o}**

**(xi) 179 ^{o}**

**(xii) 360 ^{o}**

**(xiii) 90 Â½ ^{o}**

**Solution:**

(i) 118^{o} is an obtuse angle.

(ii) 29^{o} is an acute angle.

(iii) 145^{o} is an obtuse angle.

(iv) 165^{o} is an obtuse angle.

(v) 0^{o} is a zero angle.

(vi) 75^{o} is an acute angle.

(vii) 180^{o} is a straight angle.

(viii) 89.5^{o} is an acute angle.

(ix) 30^{o} is an acute angle.

(x) 90^{o} is a right angle.

(xi) 179^{o} is an obtuse angle.

(xii) 360^{o} is a complete angle.

(xiii) 90 Â½ ^{o} is an obtuse angle.

**11. Using only a ruler, draw an acute angle, a right angle and an obtuse angle in your notebook and name them.**

**Solution:**

**12. State the kind of angle, in each case, formed between the following directions:**

**(i) East and West**

**(ii) East and North**

**(iii) North and North-East**

**(iv) North and South-East**

**Solution:**

(i) East and West directions form a straight angle (180^{o}).

(ii) East and North directions form a right angle (90^{o}).

(iii) North and North-East directions form an acute angle (45^{o}).

(iv) North and South-East directions form an obtuse angle (135^{o}).

**13. State the kind of each of the following angles:**

**Solution:**

(i) Acute angle which measures between 0^{o} and 90^{o}.

(ii) Obtuse angle which measures between 90^{o} and 180^{o}.

(iii) Straight angle which measures 180^{o}.

(iv) Right angle which measures 90^{o}.

(v) Complete angle which measures 360^{o}.
