To get the area of the minor segment AB , you'll first calculate the area of the sector AOB using the formula that i had provided earlier . Now subtract the area of the triangle from the area of the sector to get the area of the segment .

If you want to get the area of the major segment , then you'll have to subtract that area from the area of the circle .

You mean something on the lines of 3D geometry ?

Did you mean the following formula ?

\[\text{Area of sector} = \dfrac{\theta}{2\pi} \pi r^{2}\]

And likewise the formula for segment can be got by subtracting it from the triangle formed by the chord with the radii .

I am confused by your comment since a segment is a segment in both 2D as well as 3D .
