## Circle Segment Area

A circle segment is a region bounded by an arc and a chord of a circle. The area of a circle segment is the area of the corresponding sector minus the area of the triangle formed by the radii and the chord. To find the area of a circle segment, you need to know the radius of the circle and the length of the chord. This circle segment area calculator makes it easy to find the area of a circle segment.

## Circle Segment Area Formulas

There are two formulas that can be used to find the area of a circle segment. The first formula uses the central angle of the segment, while the second formula uses the length of the chord and the radius of the circle. The formulas are:

- S = \dfrac{R^2}{2}\left(\pi \dfrac{\alpha^o}{180^o}-sin(\alpha)\right)
- S = \dfrac{R^2}{2}(\alpha - sin(\alpha))

## How to Use the Circle Segment Area Calculator

Using this calculator is easy. Just follow these steps:

- Enter the radius of the circle in the first box.
- Enter the central angle in the second box.
- Our calculator will automatically give you the answer.

## Circle Segment Area Example

For example, let's say you have a circle with a radius of 5 units and a chord length of 8 units. To find the area of the corresponding circle segment, use the following steps:

- Enter the value 8 in the `Radius` box.
- Enter the value 60 in the `Central angle` box.
- You will get the area of the circle segment, which is 2.2647 units².

## Conclusion
