I am designing digitally printed artwork that will be applied to a panel that is already radiused. I need to create an equal border all around, but can not figure this out until I know the what the larger, flat dimension of the radiused panel would be. Attached is the information that I know. Thank you in advance for your help.

I may not be using proper terminology, so I apologize. If you could visualize physically holding the arc segment and and then bending it flat, what would the flat length be? Thank you!
