What purpose does the semi circle serve at the top of the 18 yard box on a soccer field?

The arc at the top of the penalty area is not a full half circle. It is scribed out with the penalty mark as its center, and it's there to provide a reference mark that allows players and the officials to know where "10 yards from the ball" is with reference to the penalty mark. Upon a penalty kick, players will take up positions about the top of the penalty box, but outside the arc. The top center of the penalty box is actually a bit closer to the penalty mark than 10 yards. Hence the need for the line. The Laws of the Game require players to be ten yards from the penalty mark (and outside of the penalty box) at the time a penalty kick is taken. Players must remain outside those areas until the ball is touched to (re)initiate play.
