# What do you call the outer edge of a circle?

**circle**to the

**edge**is

**called**the radius. The distance around the

**outside**of a

**circle**is

**called**the circumference. All points on the

**edge of a circle are**the same distance to the center.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what are the different parts of a circle?

**Important Circle Parts**

- Radius: The distance from the center of the circle to its outer rim.
- Chord: A line segment whose endpoints are on a circle.
- Diameter: A chord that passes through the center of the circle.
- Secant: A line that intersects a circle in two points.

Also, what are the eight part of a circle? We will also learn about congruent **circles**, concentric **circles** and intersecting **circles**. The following figures show the different **parts of a circle**: tangent, chord, radius, diameter, minor arc, major arc, minor segment, major segment, minor sector, major sector.

Hereof, what is a circle called?

**Circle** is the locus of points equidistant from a given point, the center of the **circle**. A **circle** is a plane figure contained by one line, which is **called** circumference, and is such, that all straight lines drawn from a certain point within the figure to the circumference, are equal to one another.

What do you call a segment of a circle?

Sectors And **Segments**. A sector is the part of a **circle** enclosed by two radii of a **circle** and their intercepted arc. The **segment of a circle** is the region bounded by a chord and the arc subtended by the chord.
