COMMENTS

For a circle with radius r, the measurement in radians of the central angle with endpoints on the circle that are r*4/Pi apart: The average central angle (<= Pi) formed using two randomly chosen points on a circle. The average arc length between such endpoints is r*A120669 corresponding to the average chord length r*A088538; so for the unit circle arc length is A120669 and chord length is A088538.
