Arc (geometry)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In geometry, an arc is a closed segment of a differentiable curve in the two-dimensional plane; for example, a circular arc is a segment of the circumference of a circle. If the arc occupies a great circle (or great ellipse), it is called a great-arc.

A circular sector is shaded in green. Its curved boundary of length L is a circular arc.

Arc Length

The length of an arc of a circle with radius r and subtending an angle circle center i.e., the central angle equals . This is because

A practical way to determine the length of an arc in a circle is to plot two lines from the arc's endpoints to the center of the circle, measure the angle where the two lines meet the center, then solve for L by cross-multiplying the statement: measure of angle/360 = L/Circumference. For example, if the measure of the angle is 60 degrees and the Circumference is 24", then 60/360 = L/24 360L=1440 L = 4". This is so due to the fact that the circumference of a circle and the degrees of a circle, of which there are always 360, are directly proportionate.

Arc Area

The area between an arc and the center of a circle is:

The area A has the same proportion to the circle area as the angle to a full circle:

Using the conversion described above, we find that the area of the sector for a central angle measured in degrees is:

The area of the shape limited by the arc and a straight line between the two end points is:

To get the area of the arc segment, we need to subtract the area of the triangle made up by the circle's center and the two end points of the arc from the area A. See Circular segment for details.
