# Approximate Area of Segment of a Circle Calculator

Area of a segment of a circle computes the area defined by an arc and the chord connecting the ends of the arc. Use this online Approximate Area of Segment of a Circle Calculator to calculate the approximate circle segment area with height and radius. Using height of the segment and radius is one of the ways to calculate area of Segment of a Circle. Any cone has a base circle and area of a segment can be calculated with the height of the cone and the base radius.

#### Formula:

S ≃ (2/3) h x (2√(2 x h x R - h^{2}))
**Where,**
S = Area of Segment of a Circle
h = Height
R = Radius

#### Example

**
A circle has a height of 6mm and radius of 8mm. Find Approximate Area of Segment of a Circle.**

S = (2/3) 6 × (2 × √(2 × 6 × 8 - 6^{2}))
= 4 × 2 × √(60)
= 61.9677mm^{2}.
