## Circle Sector Area

A circle sector is a portion of a circle enclosed by two radii and an arc. Finding the area of a circle sector is an important skill in geometry. This calculator and formula make it easy to find the area of your circle sector.

## Circle Sector Area Formula

The formula for finding the area of a circle sector is:

S = \pi *R^2* \dfrac{\alpha^o}{360^o}

Where S is the area, α is the central angle of the sector in degrees, π is pi (3.14), and R is the radius of the circle.

## How to Find Circle Sector Area

You can find the area of a circle sector using two different methods:

### Method 1: Through the Corner of the Sector

If you know the radius and the central angle of the sector in degrees, you can use the following formula to find the area:

S = \pi *R^2* \dfrac{\alpha^o}{360^o}

Where α is the central angle of the sector in degrees, π is pi (3.14), and R is the radius of the circle.

### Method 2: Through the Arc Length of the Sector

If you know the radius and the length of the arc that forms the sector, you can use the following formula to find the area:

S = \dfrac{1}{2}*l*R

Where l is the length of the arc and R is the radius of the circle.

## Circle Sector Area Examples

Here are some examples of finding the area of a circle sector using the formulas:

### Example 1

Find the area of a circle sector with a radius of 5 cm and a central angle of 60 degrees.

S = \pi *R^2* \dfrac{\alpha^o}{360^o}

S = \pi *5^2* \dfrac{60^o}{360^o}

S = 4.14 cm^2

### Example 2

Find the area of a circle sector with a radius of 7 cm and an arc length of 4 cm.

S = \dfrac{1}{2}*l*R

S = \dfrac{1}{2}*4*7

S = 14 cm^2
