A circle is the set of all points in a plane that are at a given distance from a given point, the centre; equivalently it is the curve traced out by a point that moves so that its distance from a given point is constant. The radius of a circle is the distance from the center of a circle to any point on the circle. The Diameter starts at one side of the circle, goes through the center and ends on the other side.

A circle is an important shape in the field of geometry. Let’s look at the definition of a circle and its parts. We will also examine the relationship between the circle and the plane. A circle is a shape with all points the same distance from its center. A circle is named by its center. Thus, the circle to the right is called circle A since its center is at point. A. Some real world examples of a circle are a wheel, a dinner plate and (the surface of) a coin. A central angle is an angle formed by two intersecting radii such that its vertex is at the center of the circle.
Radius of a circle
A circle is the set of all points in a plane. The distance from the centre of the circle to any point on a circle is the radius and the line starts from one point of circle , goes through the centre and ends on the other end of the circle is known as diameter.
Diameter of a circle
The distance across a circle through the center is called the diameter. The radius of a circle is the distance from the center of a circle to any point on the circle and the diameter is the twice of the radius.
