 Question 108270: Automotive trades: What length on the circumference would a 20 degree angle span on a 16-in. fly wheel?Found 2 solutions by stanbon, chitra:Answer by stanbon(57400)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!What length on the circumference would a 20 degree angle span on a 16-in. fly wheel? -------- Circumference = (pi)d = 16(pi) inches ---- A 20 degree span will be (20/360)*16(pi) = 2.7925... inches ============ Cheers, Stan H. Answer by chitra(359)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The length of the circumference s = r* theta where s is the lenght of the circumference r is the total span of the curve theta is the angle made so substituing in the above formula we get: S = 16 * 20 s = 320 thus the solution
