Difference between revisions of "Circle"

Definition

• The locus of points distance $\displaystyle {r}$(radius) from center ${O}$
• A cross section of a cone or cylinder parallel to the base. For more on this, see Dandelin Spheres, a commonly used method of deriving all Conic sections.
• All x, y such that $(x - a)^{2} + (y - b)^{2} = r^{2}$ for a circle centered at $(a,b)$ with radius ${r}$

Formulas

• Area $\displaystyle \pi r^2$
• circumference $\displaystyle 2\pi r$

Other Properties

• awaiting diagrams to add stuff on inscribed angles + tangents.
