Formula for Area of Overlapping Rings?

  1. Mar 27, 2009 #1
    Could anyone direct me to a formula for the area enclosed by two overlapping rings? Sketch below...

    I realize my question was a little bit ambiguous... specifically, the area in terms of the radius of the two circles and the distance between their centers. The rings are identical.

    Sorry about that.
