# Bourke High School - Area of an Annulus

This applet calculates the area of an annulus, having a larger radius R and a smaller radius r. The two radii can be varied by moving the black dots where the labels 'Outer' and 'Inner' are shown.
Use the applet to answer the following questions:
1. What is the formula for the area of an annulus?
2. By varying the radii, what is the smallest and largest area of the applet's annulus?
