# Length of the chord of the circle whose radius and the angle subtended at the center by the chord is given

Given a circle whose radius and the angle subtended at the centre by its chord is given. The task is to find the length of the chord.

**Examples:**

Input:r = 4, x = 63Output:4.17809Input::r = 9, x = 71Output::10.448

**Approach**:

- Let the circle has center at
**O**and has radius**r**, and it’s chord be**AB**. - length of the chord be
**2d**, and the angle subtended by it on the center be**2x**degrees. - As the perpendicular dropped at the chord bisects the chord so, the perpendicular also equally divides the subtended angle
**2x**in**x**degrees. - So, from the diagram,

**d/r = sin(x*π/180)**(here x deg is converted in radians) - So,
**d = rsin(x*π/180)**

therefore,**2d = 2rsin(x*π/180)**

- So,

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
