I know that the formula to work out the chord length is $\displaystyle 2r\sin\frac{\theta}{2} $

$\displaystyle \theta $ is radians

So I get

$\displaystyle \frac{5}{6} =\sin\frac{\theta}{2} $

What do I do now?

I'm new to all this radian stuff (I'm completely clueless). I only know how to convert degrees to radians and vice versa
