 Conversion | Geometry Formula | Chocked Flow | Chemical Properties Home | Contact Us | Sitemap In geometry, a circular segment (symbol: ⌓) is an area of a circle informally defined as an area which is "cut off" from the rest of the circle by a secant or a chord. The circle segment constitutes the part between the secant and an arc, excluding of the circle's center. Wikipedia
