When using Grapher what equation must I use to be able to graph a specific circle segment? Using y^2+x^2 will graph a complete circle, and using

y=sqrt(4-x^2) will give me a semi-circle, but what equation must I use to get any other segment, like for a 45˚, 66˚, 152˚, or any segment between 0˚ and 360˚.?

 

Would greatly appreciate the help. I am a senior, just toying around with this.

 

Thanks.
