This is a bit of a guess but assuming:
- as the vertical angle of the sphere,
- Path of FG is part of a cirlce with radius 5,
I took the difference of the (verticle) angle for FG as as radians.
Therefore, the arclength of a sector (of a circle) with angle is:
From this, we can derive the path length of FG.
If this is not quite correct then please state.Last edited by simon0; 13-11-2017 at 04:37.

Did you manage to derive the answer?
