To find the length of the arc, multiply the angle in radians by the radius.

arc length=`thetar` (1)

where `theta` is the angle and r is the radius of the circle

For a whole circle, the angle is `2pi` , so the length of the arc is `2pir`

Substitute `(5pi)/3` for `theta` and 6 inches for r in (1):

arc length=`((5pi)/3)*6=10pi`

**Therefore the arc length is `10pi` **
