A_sector = A_circle (θ/(2π)) ....... geometrically

= πr² (θ/(2π))

= 1/2 r²θ

A = ∫ ∫ r dr dθ ........ calculus

= 1/2r² ∫ dθ

= 1/2r²θ

Answer: see above

a million. There are 2 pi radians in an entire circle. the area of a circle of radius 10m is A = pi r^2 = pi (10m)^2 = one hundred pi m^2. the area of a sector with suitable perspective a million radian is (one hundred pi m^2) * (a million / (2 pi)) = 50 m^2 answer: 50 m^2 2. sixteen m^2 = (pi r^2) * (2 / (2 pi)) = pi r^2 * (a million / pi) = r^2 r^2 = sixteen m^2 r = 4m answer: The radius is 4 meters.
