We are given that AB = 5 cm and $\angle$ AOB = 60°

Let us draw OM such that OM $\bot$ AB.

In right angle triangle AMO,

$sin30{\rm{^\circ }} = \frac{{AM}}{{AO}}$

$\Rightarrow$ AO = 2*AM = 2*2.5 = 5 cm. Therefore, we can say that the radius of the circle = 5 cm.

In right angle triangle PNO,

$sin60{\rm{^\circ }} = \frac{{PN}}{{PO}}$

$\Rightarrow$ PN = $\frac{{\sqrt 3 }}{2}$*PO = $\frac{{5\sqrt 3 }}{2}$

Therefore, PQ = 2*PN = $5\sqrt 3$ cm
