A chord and an arc of a circle 2014-08-06
From Luis:
Hello I am trying to figure out how to get chord lengths of quarter points for a circle. I work with large diameter circles and I need to be able to find chord length from 0 degrees to 90 degrees, 0 degrees to 270 degrees, 270 degrees to 180 degrees and 90 degrees to 180 degrees. Can you please use 100ft. diameter as example and work out the problem. I'm sorry if I use wrong terminology, I'm really bad at math . Thank you in advance for your time and help I really appreciate it.

Arc length and Chord length 2010-03-13
From Darryl:
Is there a formula to determine the chord length of an arc knowing only the arc length and the arc depth (sagitta)? I know you can't find the radius with only these two inputs, but can you find the chord length?

Chord length 2002-05-17
From Ashlie:
How do you find the chord length of one section of a chord if you only have the diameter length and the other whole chord length.

WV is the diameter and equals 16. XY is perpendicular to it, and equals 10. They intersect at pt. Z. I need to know what WZ equals. Please help!
