Arc length

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An arc’s length means the same commonsense thing length always means — you know, like the length of a piece of string (with an arc, of course, it’d be a curved piece of string), it the length of an arc subtended by a central angle in a circle. Make sure you don’t mix up arc length with the measure of an arc which is the degree size of its central angle.
