One of the simplest theorems of spherical trigonometry to prove using plane trigonometry is the spherical law of cosines theorem 11 (the spherical law of cosines): consider a spherical. Spherical trigonometry a great-circle arc, on the sphere, is the analogue of a straight line, on the plane where two such arcs intersect, we can define the spherical angle either as angle. Spherical triangle any section made by a cutting plane that passes through a sphere is circle a great circle is formed when the cutting plane passes through the center of the sphere. Spherical trigonometry is the branch of spherical geometry that deals with the relationships between trigonometric functions of the sides and angles of the spherical polygons (especially.
