E73 -- Solutio Problematis geometrici circa lunulas a circulis formatas

(The solution to a geometric Problem about circles shaped as moons)


In this paper, Euler presents his solution, invovling the arcsine function, to a problem of Daniel Bernoulli (that Euler heard about through Goldbach) that is related to dissecting certain circles into pieces, all of which have equal area.

According to the records, it was presented to the St. Petersburg Academy on September 16, 1737.
