**Steve**, Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at 12:44pmThe wiper covers 60 deg, or 1/6 of a circle. The area of a circle is πr^2. So, the area of a 10" circle is 100π. But we have to subtract the area of a 1" circle, since the rubber does not cover the inside inch. That would be π. So, a whole 10" circle minus a 1" circle would be 99π. But we only have 1/6 of that, or 16.5π = 51.8 sq. in.
