what is the formula to find a sector in a circle?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so I'm given the radius and the arc of angle 60 degrees. To find the area in that arc, the forumla is something along the lines of:

[tex]A=\frac{r^2}{2} * arc[/tex] so...

[tex]A=\frac{r^2}{2} * \frac{\pi}{3}[/tex]

is this right?
