Python Math: Calculate arc length of an angle

Python Math: Exercise-7 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate arc length of an angle.
Note: In a planar geometry, an angle is the figure formed by two rays, called the sides of the angle, sharing a common endpoint, called the vertex of the angle. Angles formed by two rays lie in a plane, but this plane does not have to be a Euclidean plane.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

def arclength():
    diameter = float(input('Diameter of circle: '))
    angle = float(input('angle measure: '))
    if angle >= 360:
        print("Angle is not possible")
    arc_length = (pi*diameter) * (angle/360)
    print("Arc Length is: ", arc_length)


Sample Output:

Diameter of circle: 9                                                                                         
angle measure: 45                                                                                             
Arc Length is:  3.5357142857142856

Python: Get the Key Whose Value Is Maximal in a Dictionary

>>> model_scores = {'model_a': 100, 'model_z': 198, 'model_t': 150}
>>> # workaround
>>> keys, values = list(model_scores.keys()), list(model_scores.values())
>>> keys[values.index(max(values))]
>>> # one-line
>>> max(model_scores, key=model_scores.get)
