Divide the degrees by 180 degrees, then multiply by pi and the radius:What is the formula to convert the length of an arc in degrees to feet? The arc length is 126.5 degrees.
L = (126.5/180)*pi*radius
Be careful of your units. If you want the answer to be in feet, your radius must be in feet.
Use L = r*(angle) if the angle is in radians.
Thank you for the help!
