This problem should be very difficult for those of you inexperienced with geometry, yet anyone who has taken geometry and trigonometry is capable of solving this problem. Feel free to post the answer/ discuss, hopefully more of the latter.

There is a circle of grass with the radius R. We want to let a sheep eat the grass from that circle by attaching the sheep's leash on the edge of the circle. What must be the length of the leash for the sheep to eat exactly half of the grass?
