7.17 Circle Facts

  • Circle is the set of all points in a plane at a fixed distance, called the radius, from a given point, the centre.
  • A circle can be drawn with the help of a compass.
  • A line from the center to any point on the circle is called radius.
  • The distance across a circle through its center is called its diameter.
  • Diameter is twice the radius.
  • A line segment joining two points on a circle shown in the figure is called a chord.
    DC is the chord
    SC is the diameter
    PC is the radius
    P is the center
  • Diameter is the biggest chord and divides the circle into exactly two halves.
  • The circumference of a circle is the perimeter of the circle.
  • The distance around a circle is called its circumference.
  • The formula to find the circumference of the circle is C = Pi x 2 x r
  • The area of the circle is A = Pi x r2
