Chord length of a Circular segment


Circular segment is a region of a circle which is “cut off” from the rest of the circle by a secant or a chord. More formally, a Circular segment is a region of two-dimensional space that is bounded by an arc (of less than 180°) of a circle and by the chord connecting the endpoints of the arc. The chord length can be calculated by the radius of the circle and the central angle.
