## How to calculate the arc of a quarter circle?

The arc of a quarter circle equals 1/4 of a perimeter of the entire circle. If we want to calculate it, we need to divide the mentioned parameter by 4.

The entire circle perimeter = 2 × π × r²

The arc of a quarter circle = (π × r²)/ 2

It's that simple, isn't it?

## How to calculate the chord of a quarter circle?

Calculating the chord of a quarter circle is a little bit difficult since it encompasses a conversion of degrees to radians. Let's begin with the equation itself:

Chord = 2 × r × sin(1.57/ 2)
Chord = 2 × r × sin(0.79)

Where r stands for radius of the circle, and sine is given in radians.

How do we know it? The quarter circle contains a 90° angle equal to 1.57 radians.

## How to calculate the quarter circle perimeter?

1. The quarter circle perimeter consists of two components:

2 × r

• Arc of the quarter circle.

(π × r²)/ 2

1. Let's combine them together:

The quarter circle perimeter = (2 × r) + (π × r²/ 2)

## How to calculate the area of a quarter circle?

Let's make it nice and simple!

The quarter circle equals 1/4 of the entire circle; in order to calculate it, we need to divide the are of the whole circle by 4:

Whole circle area = π × r²

Quarter circle area = (π × r²)/ 4

r - the radius of the circle, equal to half of the diameter.

## How to use the quarter circle area calculator?

It just couldn't be easier - and we sure mean it!

And well.. that's it. Enjoy your results. 🎉

## FAQ

### How many quarter circles equal a whole circle?

4 quarter circles equal a whole circle.

That's why, if you want to compute the area of a quarter circle, you need to divide the area of a whole circle by 4.

Quarter circle area = Full circle area/ 4

### How to calculate the area of a quarter circle with radius = 2?

1. It's pretty effortless - if we know that the radius = 2, and π= 3.14, we just need to follow the equation below:

Quarter circle area = (π × r²)/ 4

Quarter circle area = (π × 2²)/ 4

Quarter circle area = (π × 4)/ 4

Quarter circle area = π

1. We already know the answer: the quarter circle area with the radius of 2 equals π!
