5√3
 \(2\pi \)
Show Answer
Correct Answer: 3

Since $\Delta \mathrm{OAB}$ is equilateral,
radius of the circle is 5 $\mathrm{cm}$ .
In $\Delta \mathrm{OCD},$ by sine rule,
$\frac{5}{\sin 30^{\circ}}=\frac{\mathrm{CD}}{\sin 120^{\circ}}$
$\Rightarrow \mathrm{CD}=5 \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2} \times 2$
$=5 \sqrt{3}$
