You have to know the radius, or else the angle the arc subtends. Itherwise you can't.

I found this page searching for an answer that I needed myself.

I found my solution using this web-based calculator.

I'm not sure if this will help you I've been hastily browsing... but it might!

Good luck.

I cant post a link... so do a google search for "handy math complete circular arc calculator"
