    finding angle in radians of segment??

    Hi,
    any help would be appreciated.

    segment area =(1/2)r^2(theta-sin(theta))

    96=(1/2)14^2(theta-sin(theta))

    96=98(theta-sin(theta))

    96/98=theta-sin(theta)

    how do I solve theta??

    Regards,

    I think it will be difficult unless iteration method is used. However, see this solution.
