I'm trying to figure out the surface area on a 5 sided shape where the sides can all be modeled by "lunes". The shape will end up looking like a banana peel. We are modeling the sides of the shape as lunes with varying angles on a sphere of radius 3 inches. I'm trying to figure out how I would determine the surface area of the banana peel.
The Attempt at a Solution
Let me begin by saying I am quite confused... I have done a lot of thinking on this problem but seemingly to no avail. If I have 5 sides, could I do a length x width for each side and multiply it by 5? I need one of you genius's on this forum to help me understand what's going on here!
