• Today in this article I will discuss on what is circle, centre of a circle, radius of a circle, diameter, chord, tangent, secant, sector, segment, along with some formulae related on circle. 

circle formula


  •  A curve plane figure whose circumference consists of a large number of points which are equidistant from a fixed point is termed as circle. In the picture,"O" is a circle.




    •  Any line which touches the circumstance and centre of a circle is called radius of the circle.It is denoted by 'r' In the picture, OA=OB radii of the circle "O"


    •  Any line which passes through the centre of a circle and meets the circumference is called diameter of the circle. It is denoted by 'd' . In the picture,"AB" is the diameter of the circle"O"


    "CD" is a chord of the circle "O"

    A line which don't pass through the centre of a circle but joins any two points on the circumference of the circle is called chord of a circle.In the picture,



    •   A straight line which touches the circle at two distinct points towards its circumstances is known as secant of the circle. In the picture, "CD" is the secant of the circle.


    What are 3 types of circle?


    • The region enclosed by two radii and an arc inside the circle is called sector of the circle. There are two sectors in every circle and they are namely major sector and minor sector. In the picture, "AOB" is a minor sector of the circle "O"


    • The region which is cut by a chord or a secant is  called segment of the circle. When a chord cuts a circle it produces the minor and major segment.In the picture, region cut by the chord "CD"is a minor segment of the circle "O"

    Relation between diameter and radius of a circle:-


    • or,
    •  d =2×r, where d= diameter of the circle and r= radius of the circle.
    • Some formulae of circle:-
    • Perimeter or circumstance of a circle= 2πr
    • Where,
    • r= Radius of the circle.
    •   π= pie =22/7 for the convenience of problems solve is taken.

    • Area of a circle= πr²
    • Length of arc=∅÷360×2πr
    • Where,
    •   ∅= measurement of centre angle.
    •   π = Radius of the circle.
    • Area of the minor sector=∅÷360° ×πr²
    • Where,
    •  ∅=measure of angle of the minor sector.
    •  r= Radius of the circle.
    • Area of the major segment= Area of the circle— Area of the minor sector.
    •   Where,
    •   ∅=measure of angle of the minor segment    
    •  r = Radius of the circle.
    • Area of the major segment= Area of the circle—Area of the minor segment.
