A sensor light installed on the edge of a home can detect motion for a distance of 50ft. in front and with a range of motion of 192degree. Over what area will the sensor detect motion and become illuminated?

  • Math -

    Area = area of full circle * (θ/360)
    =π 50^2*192/360
    =4000/3 ft^2.

  • Trigonometry -

    making correction in just the answer all procedures are well done !!

    Area = area of full circle * (θ/360)
    =π 50^2*192/360
    = 4188.79 ft^2
