# Python Math: Calculate the area of sector

## Python Math: Exercise-8 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the area of a sector.

Note: A circular sector or circle sector, is the portion of a disk enclosed by two radii and an arc, where the smaller area is known as the minor sector and the larger being the major sector.

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
def sectorarea():
pi=22/7
radius = float(input('Radius of Circle: '))
angle = float(input('angle measure: '))
if angle >= 360:
print("Angle is not possible")
return
sur_area = (pi*radius**2) * (angle/360)
print("Sector Area: ", sur_area)
sectorarea()
```

Sample Output:

Radius of Circle: 4 angle measure: 45 Sector Area: 6.285714285714286
