How to Find the Surface Area of a Spherical Segment
The surface area of a spherical segment with height and radius is given by
Note! Some books use the word spherical segment about the part of the sphere that looks like a hat, and not the one that looks like a belt. The formula for the area of the hat is exactly the same as for the belt, but in that case is the height from the base of the hat and up to the top of the sphere, instead of the height from the center of the sphere up to the top of the segment.
