Subject: question on finding arch length

Hi,

My question is in how to find the distance between the arc and the
base. Such as, you have a base line of 10 inches. Your arc is conected
at the base of both sides (A,B) and for the sake of putting in a value
for the arc say it's 12 inches long. With only knowing this how can I
find the radus or distance between the base and peek or the farthest
point that the arc is away from the base. 

Thanks for the help,

Chris
