A spherical segment

The aspherical section, whose axial section has an angle of j = 120° in the center of the sphere, is part of a sphere with a radius r = 10 cm. Calculate the cut surface.

Correct answer:

S =  586.2292 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

α=120  r=10 cm  sin α/2 = a:r  a=r sin(α/2)=10 sin(120°/2)=8.66025 cm  h=rr2a2=101028.66032=5 cm  S1=2π r h=2 3.1416 10 5314.1593 cm2  S2=π a r=3.1416 8.6603 10272.0699 cm2  S=S1+S2=314.1593+272.0699=586.2292 cm2
