Bug report
Hi there,

When I compare the results of these formula to another derivation (http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/114371/deriving-the-area-of-a-sector-of-an-ellipse) I find that inputs of
angle theta1 = 0.8
semimajor axis a = 1100
semiminor axis b = 979

give different results. Your calculator returns 814,874.12267598 and the formula (a*b/2)(atan((a/b)*tan(theta1))-atan((a/b)*tan(theta0))) returns 753830.0.

Which one is wrong? Is it possible for you to post a derivation of your formulas?

Purpose of use
I'm trying to calculate how much of the area of an ellipse I will block if I install a deflector plate across part of the opening. In addition to the information you provide, I need to know the chord length across L. I was looking for website that would do it, but it looks like I will have to do some real math myself.
