So far I can only calculate the sagitta length using the radius and length of the chord i.e.

[tex]S = r - \sqrt{r^2 - \frac{1}{2}l^2}[/tex]

Where r is the radius of the circle and l is the length of the chord.

Hi CGUE !

sin = opp/hyp …

sin 1/2 sector angle = 1/2 l/r

sin = opp/hyp …

sin 1/2 sector angle = 1/2 l/r
