##### Reference no: EM1385355

A simple curve has a central angle of 42 degreess. A point Y is located 24m from the vertex and has a perpendicular distance of 3.00m from the back tangent.

a) Compute the radius of the curve.

b) Find the length of the chord connecting P.C and point Y.

c) Find the length of the curve from P.C to P.T.
