# Parts of a Circle

It's only fair to share...

Labels for the different parts of a circle are given below

 Radius – the radius of a circle is the distance from the centre labelled O to the circumference. The radius is labelled The circumference of a circle is the perimeter, and is labelled Diameter – diameter of a circle is the length of a straight line between opposite ends drawn through the centre. The diameter is labelled and is equal to Tangent – A straight line drawn outside the circle which just touches it. Chord – a line (not through the centre) drawn between any two points on the circumference. Arc – a part of the circumference. The length of an arc iswhereis the radius and is the angle in radians. Sector – the part of a a circle between two radii and an arc. We can divide a circle into major and minor sectors. The area of a sector iswhereis the angle in radians. Segment – the part of a a circle between chord and an arc. We can divide a circle into major and minor segments.The area of the minor segment on the right iswhereis in radians.
