4. What is an Circle?
The word circle comes from the Latin word “ CIRCULUS”
which means disc.
A circle is set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a
given fixed point.
The fixed point is called the centre of the circle.

5. Parts of a circle
The point at which we place
the needle end of the compass
and move the pencil around it
is the centre of the circle.
The length of the boundary of
the circle is the circumference
of the circle.
In other words, it is the
perimeter of the circle.
The line segment joining the centre
to any point on the circle.
* Infinite number of radius can
be drawn in a circle.
* All the radii of a circle are
equal in length.
A diameter of a circle is line
segment that joins any two
points on the circle and passes
through its centre.
Infinite number of diameters
can be drawn in a circle and all
are equal in length.
A line segment that joins any two
points on the circle is called chord.
Infinite number of chords can be
Diameter is the longest chord of a
An arc of a circle is a part of circle
included between two distinct
points of the circle.
The larger arc is called MAJOR
ARC and the smaller arc is called
