CHORD METHOD: The chord method of angle construction refers to the
joining of two points on a curve by a line. Draw line x at any length and
draw an arc at any radius, again let R= 10. Find chordal length C in the
table of chords and multiply the value by 10. If a table is not available,
calculate chordal value with the formula C = 2 sin
Figure 2-36 is an angle drawn by the chord method.
