Abstract: It has been long conjectured that the two spherical caps are then only discs in the Euclidean three-space $ {\mathbb{R}^3}$ with non-zero constant mean curvature spanning a round circle. In this work, we prove that it is true when the area of such a disc is less than or equal to that of the big spherical cap.
