Default Any Math Guys out there?

I have built up the back wall of my oven with 4X16 cinder block
I would like to cut the block in a barrel shaped curve.
the width of the back wall is 63&1/2 inches.
the height of the curve, or sag is 10&3/4 inches
how do I find the radius of this curve?

Too many years since highschool geometry!

I'm no math wiz but the internet is full of people who bathe in the stuff. Here is a site that will perform any kind of radii you might need.
