Angle(ROU)/360 = Arc(ROU)/Circumference

Angle(ROU) = ((4pi/3)*360)/2Pi(4) = 60

In triangle ORU where o is the center of the circle, RO = OU since they are the radii of the triangle
SO with Angle(ROU) = 60 that makes triangle ORU equilateral triangle and RU = 4.

Is that right??

i also can deduce this that the centre angle is 60 degree.

is it
if center angel is 60 degree. so rest of the angel is 60?

what is the formiula behind this

Draw it out. As long as the position of T is outside of ARC(RU) then its position is irrelevant.

Center Angle is 60 deg & we also know the 2 sides of this angle are equal (because both are radius of the circle, means ISOSCELS triangle), other 2 angles should be 60 degree.
