COMMENTS

In other words, the triangle height is A179377*r. The segment height ("cap height" in MathWorld link) is A179376*r. The chord length is A179375*r. The arc length of the circular segment/sector is r*A179373. The area of the circular segment, r^2, is 1/Pi (A049541) times the area of the circle. The area of the sector is (r^2)*(A179373/2) = (r^2)*(1 + A179378). See references and cross-references for other relationships.
