Circle Definition Circle : The set of points coplanar points equidistant from a given point. The given point is called the CENTER of the circle. The distance from the center to the circle is called the RADIUS. Center Radius Lesson 8-1: Circle Terminology

Definitions Chord : The segment whose endpoints lie on the circle. Diameter : A chord that contains the center of the circle. Tangent : A line in the plane of the circle that intersects the circle in exactly one point. Point of Tangency : The point where the tangent line intersects the circle.

**Lesson 8-1: Circle Terminology**

Minor Arc & Major Arc Minor Arc : A minor arc is an arc that is less than 180° A minor arc is named using its endpoints with an “arc” above. A Example: Major Arc: A major arc is an arc that is greater than 180°. B B O A major arc is named using its endpoints along with another point on the arc (in order). A Example: C Lesson 8-1: Circle Terminology
