Problem 1

The parcel shown has four straight sides and one curved side.

A series of angle and distance measurements were made from points B, Q, and W.

The arc radius is 150.00 ft.

Using (100.00 ft N, 500.00 ft E) coordinates for B and a N15°40'00"E bearing from B to Q determine:

Part a.

Length and bearing of the straight sides and arc chord traveling clockwise around the parcel.

Part b.

Central angle of the curved side.

Part C.

Parcel area (to nearest 10 sq ft).

Solution: COGO 1 Prob 1

Problem 2

Lot 17 is a corner parcel in a subdivision. Its boundary consists of a series of straight lines and tangent curves.


Using the provided information and (1000.00 ft N, 500.00 ft E) for the coordinates of point B, determine:

Part a.

Coordinates of the remaining points

Part b.

Lot 17's area (to nearest 10 sq ft).

Solution: COGO 1 Prob 2
