Calculate area of intersecting circles
The area of intersecting circles can be calculated as
Thanks to Eric Eberly for providing this information.
If radii r1, r2 and distance d between the centers are given - then the angles α1 and α2 can be calculated as
α1 = acos[(d2 + r12 - r22)/(2 d r1)]
α2 = acos[(d2 + r22 - r12)/(2 d r2)]
