Arc is nothing but a segment of a circle. Arc length is the length of the curved portion that makes up the arc. The arc length is greater than the length of the straight line that can be drawn between the end points of the arc. It is the product of the radius of the arc and the central angle of the arc. The radius of the arc is the radius of the circle of which the arc is a segment. The central angle of the arc is the angle made by the end points of the arc with the center of the circle.
The Arc Length Formula
is given as,
S represents the arc length.
r represents the radius of the arc.
θ represents the central angle of the arc.
