The area of a circular buffer is a monotonically-increasing function of buffer radius (on a planar coordinate system anyway). So a simple search strategy can find a radius R such that the area of the buffer of radius R clipped to polygonal region A is (up to some tolerance) s. The simplest search algorithm would just be a binary search. Start with two ...

When you run Polygon to Raster, under Value field you need to specify "distance" (if you haven't changed the default of Multiple Ring Buffer). Then, the new raster will have as many unique values as there were unique distances, specified under field Value. This Value field is the one to reclassify, but until you run Polygon to Raster, ArcMap won't be able ...

Try changing the buffer method from Planar to Geodesic Arguably, in such small scale features this shouldn't change much, but stranger things have happened before. Here's a case where I buffered some points in a geographic CRS with a planar buffer of 250 meters and displayed on a projected CRS. Using a geodesic method solved this issue for me.

A simple model can achieve this as shown below. Note the output of the get raster property was connected to the Buffer tool using the Connect tool. Usually you would do an in-line substitution but that does not seem to work for some reason, but a manual connect does...

It's almost impossible, due to the position of the points. You can create buffers of 400km2, but points closer to the coastline will always have a smaller area compared to the ones further away (>400km2). The only thing you can do is do perform a buffer analysis on the points and clip the created buffers with the coastline feature afterwards.

Answer: When adding XY data in NAD27 Decimal Degree Coordinates (from a .csv file The buffer distances will be inaccurate to the basemap if the basemap is in a different GCS (Geographic Coordinate System) or PCS (Projected Coordinate System) Solution: display XY data from .csv file export data by right-click on "filename.csv Events" select data then ...
