Talk:Area of Sector

From ProofWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This seems to be assuming that the area of the sector is proportional to the length of the arc which is the measure of the angle. This looks quite plausible from the picture, but I do not see any proof here.

The way to prove this is to calculate both by doing different integrals and showing the results are in proportion. (They are both proportional the $\arcsin\theta$ ). --Pelliott (talk) 18:26, 13 January 2019 (EST)

Good call. Go to it. --prime mover (talk) 04:54, 13 January 2019 (EST)

I propose replacing this whole page

New version reads as follows (What do you think):

Fine, go for it. It will need to be tidied, and the diagram rebuilt for website conformity (colours, font sizes, etc.) but that will be done in due course. --prime mover (talk) 02:23, 4 February 2019 (EST)

I submitted the diagram as a svg, not as a png, so people will be able to edit it with inkscape or something, and not have to start from scratch. --Pelliott (talk) 13:17, 4 February 2019 (EST)

Probably easier to re-do it in GeoGebra. It'd only take about 10 minutes. --prime mover (talk) 16:22, 4 February 2019 (EST)

Deleted the proof that was suggested here and then transferred into the page. --prime mover (talk) 15:16, 14 March 2019 (EDT)
