In geometry, a spherical sector is a portion of a sphere defined by a conical boundary with apex at the center of the sphere. It can be described as the union of a spherical cap and the cone formed by the center of the sphere and the base of the cap.
Radius of sphere: R
Radius of base of spherical sector: r
Total surface area: S
The formulas are correct for both open and closed spherical sector.
