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


Sample Output:

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

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)
