The center of a

**circle**is the point equidistant from the points on the edge. Similarly the center of a sphere is the point equidistant from the points on the surface, and the center of a line segment is the**midpoint**of the two ends.

Also to know is, what is the name of the center of a circle?

The **center of a circle** is also called the focus of the **circle**. In general, a focus of a two-dimensional shape is a point that can be used to define

**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.

Likewise, what is the midpoint of a circle?

Assuming you have either endpoint of the diameter of a **circle**, you can use the **midpoint** formula to find the point midway between the two points. According to the definition of a diameter, this will be the **circle's** center point. If you have the points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) , the **midpoint** formula is (x1+x22,y1+y22) .

**Center**: The **center** of a **circle** is defined as the point in the middle of the **circle**. The points that make up the curve that is the **circle** are all equidistant from the **center** point.
