Finding the Length of an Arc of a Circle


A

The length of an arc is part of the circumference


Use this proportion:

ARC LENGTH
CIRCUMFERENCE

CENTRAL
360

C= d

Finding the Area of a Sector of a Circle


The sector area is part of the circle area.
*think slice of pizza or pie when you see the word sector*

Use this proportion:

SECTOR AREA
AREA OF

CENTRAL
360

A= r

Finding the Area of the Minor Segment of a Circle

(AKA THE PIZZA CRUST)

O
A

Steps: 1.

Find the sector area (pizza slice)

2.

Find the triangle area

(cheesy part)

3.

A = a b (sin c)
A= s 3
*(only if you know it is an Equilateral )
4
Subtract: sector area - triangle area = minor segment area
(pizza slice) - (cheesy part) =

(crust)
