Area of a Segment of a Circle Formula
A circular segment is a region of a circle which is created by breaking apart from the rest of the circle through a secant or a chord. In other words it is two equal halves that are divided by the circle’s arc and connected through chord by the endpoints of the arc. Formulas to calculate the area of a segment of a circle is given below. According to the definition, the part of circular region which is enclosed between a chord and corresponding arc is known as segment of a circle. The segment portraying a larger area is known as the major segment and the segment having smaller area is known as a minor segment.
