**Diameter**. A line segment passing through the center of the circle and having its end position on the circle is called Diameter. A and B are the endpoints that are lying on the circumference of the circle.

## Is a chord is a segment with endpoints on a circle?

**A chord is a line segment whose endpoints are on a circle**. If a chord passes through the center of the circle, it is called a diameter.

## Which is a line segment?

In geometry, a line segment is **bounded by two distinct points on a line**. Or we can say a line segment is part of the line that connects two points. A line has no endpoints and extends infinitely in both the direction but a line segment has two fixed or definite endpoints.

## What is segment of a circle in maths?

A segment of a circle can be defined as **a region bounded by a chord and a corresponding arc lying between the chord’s endpoints**. In other words, a circular segment is a region of a circle which is created by breaking apart from the rest of the circle through a secant or a chord.

## What is called chord?

**A line segment connecting two points on a curve**. Example: the line segment connecting two points on a circle’s circumference is a chord. When the chord passes through the center of a circle it is called the diameter.

## Which line is called as chord?

More generally, a chord is **a line segment joining two points on any curve**, for instance, an ellipse. A chord that passes through a circle’s center point is the circle’s diameter. The word chord is from the Latin chorda meaning bowstring.

## What is the number of endpoints of a line?

A line has **no end points**, a ray has one endpoint and a line segment has two endpoints.

## How many endpoints does a line segment have?

So, a line segment is a piece or part of a line having **two endpoints**.

## How many endpoints does a line have?

A line is defined by **two points** on the line and has only one dimension. A line segment is a part of a line that has two defined endpoints. A line segment represents a collection of points inside the endpoints and it is named by its endpoints.

## What is a segment of a circle class 9?

A segment of a circle is defined as **a region bounded by the chord and the corresponding arc lying between the endpoints of the chord**. In other words, we can define it as a region of a circle, by breaking the circle through a secant of chord.

## What is a radial segment?

A radius is **a line segment with one endpoint at the center of the circle and the other endpoint on the circle**. For the circle below, AD, DB, and DC are radii of a circle with center D.

## What is segment of a circle class 10?

Part of the circular region enclosed by two radii and the corresponding arc is called a sector of the circle. **Part of the circular region enclosed between a chord and the corresponding arc** is called a segment of the circle.

## What is called arc?

In Mathematics, an “arc” is **a smooth curve joining two endpoints**. In general, an arc is one of the portions of a circle. It is basically a part of the circumference of a circle. Arc is a part of a curve. An arc can be a portion of some other curved shapes like an ellipse but mostly refers to a circle.

## What is chord of a circle class 9?

A chord is **a line passing from one point to another on the circumference of a circle**. Diameter is a chord that passes through the centre. The perimeter of a circle is known as the circumference. Chords equal in length subtend equal angles at centre.

## How do you draw a chord?

Circles – Chords, Radius &

Diameter – Basic Introduction – Geometry

## What is a chord circle?

Chord of a Circle Definition

The chord of a circle can be defined as **the line segment joining any two points on the circumference of the circle**. It should be noted that the diameter is the longest chord of a circle which passes through the center of the circle.

## Is radius a chord?

As discussed above, any line segment which connects two points on the circumference of the circle is known as a chord. While a radius connects the centre of the circle with a point of a circle. Therefore, from the definition of both terms, we can state that **radius is not a chord**.

## How many chords are in a circle?

**4 chords** can be drawn in a circle…..)
